Let’s talk supervised injections sites

Safeguarding the health and safety of our community is paramount.

There are four safe injection sites being proposed in Edmonton including one in our community of Edmonton Griesbach.

It’s important that you’re kept informed of the process and that you have the opportunity to voice your views and concerns.

I hope you can join me for my town hall on Thursday, March 30. And, don’t forget to invite your friends and family.

Why hasn’t the construction started?

Edmonton’s Liberal Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi talks a good game but he’s failing to deliver the goods on his promised projects.

Only one of 127 infrastructure projects announced by the Liberals has started construction.

Nothing has started in Edmonton.

In the House of Commons, I demanded to know why. Sohi evaded the question.
