Ward 2 Update September 2018

With students of all ages back at school, Saskatoon is buzzing with energy. Even more of us are moving about the City at the same time of day and are feeling the pinch during our morning commutes. The timing couldn't be better to be opening two new bridges and thinking hard about how to improve our City's Transportation system in other ways. Read on for tips about avoiding bus congestion, when you'll be able to drive, walk and ride the new bridges, and what's next on some other big transportation projects. Also under way right now are appointments to City advisory Committees. I encourage you to take a look and consider putting your name forward for appointment to a committee that aligns with your interests. More below under 'on the go this month'.  Continue reading

Ward 2 Update - August 2018

I hope you've been having a great summer and have taken time for some of the things that are best enjoyed when the days are longer and the weather warmer. As Fall draws nearer and the pace of work ramps up to full speed I'm eager to catch up with you about what's been going on at the City and what is to come this fall. Fall is a transitionary time for many. To everyone returning to school or striking out on a new venture - all the best to you! To everyone hanging on to every available moment of sunshine, I'd love to hear from you about the best thing you did in Saskatoon this summer! One of my favourite summer time activities is noon-hour lane swims at Riversdale pool - there aren't many more days left for that (see below)!  p.s. Taking the bus to school? Wish your stop was in better shape? Check out news about the #BusStopBluesYXE campaign below Continue reading

Ward 2 update - June 2018

Happy Summer!  June is an exciting time for events and celebrations. So far, this month has included National Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations in Victoria Park along with the Rock Your Roots walk for Reconciliation (over 4,000 joined!), the naming of the new bridge: Chief Mistawasis Bridge (thanks for your input!), Pride events (parade today!), and much more. Congratulations to everyone wrapping up another school year or making a transition at this time. I hope you're all taking a bit of time to plan a day in the sun, some time in your garden, or an extra long visit with family, friends, and neighbours during these precious long summer days.

Ward 2 update - March 2018

Happy first week of Spring! It sounds like the weather won't be cooperating to match the official change in season, but it sure has been nice to enjoy a bit of extra sunshine as we brace for the next forecasted snowfall. Of course, changing seasons comes with roadway challenges - you can find more about that below.  Continue reading

Ward 2 update - February 2018

February is coming to a close. I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. I had a great time doing some shovelling and skating at my neighbourhood rink this weekend with some neighbours. Next time you see your neighbourhood's rink coordinator give them a high five - it's a lot of work! :) Continue reading
