How long have you been a Brampton resident?
I came to work in Brampton in 1964 at Ford Motor Co. and moved to Brampton in 1976.
What would you change and/or improve in Brampton?
Brampton is a great City but we need more employment opportunities for the residents and a Rapid Transit system on Queen Street to connect to the Vaughan subway station.
If you were to receive a 10 million dollar grant for Brampton, what would you do with it and why?
If I received a $10 million dollar grant for the City, I would use it to provide recreational opportunities for the youth that are not active in sports.
What is your favourite place in Brampton and why?
My favourite place in Brampton is the Heart Lake Conservation area, because it is a nature get away from the urban environment.
