Bruce McConville Attends NowWhat? Debate In Ottawa

IMG_20181002_210642-001

Ottawa Mayoral candidates squared off in a debate over gender-based issues. The debate was hosted by NowWhat? – an alliance formed to highlight gender-based violence. Organizations such as Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre and the City for All Women Initiative prepared questions for the debate.

Bruce McConville stated, “The preservation of one’s sense of belonging to a community should be at the forefront of the city’s vision. Urban planning without social equity is like playing chess without the queen. Poverty & homelessness are social & health concerns. They are also human and civil rights issues. I want to live in a city that recognizes this.  A city that makes building adequate social housing and alleviating homelessness a priority! For all genders! And nationalities”.

In response to a question about violence when travelling on public transit, he said, “He would introduce ‘safety strips’ along bus and transit routes to help people feel safer when travelling. The reintroduction of Community Policing would also alleviate many of these incidents”..”Our City also needs to show leadership in highlighting these issues to create more awareness amongst the general public.”

Bruce McConville’s World Wide SOS Appeal to The Salvation Army Global Command & Ottawa Mayoral Campaign Launch

For Immediate Release

A very important event will take place this Friday 14 September.

Starting at 7:00 pm, there will be a worldwide SOS Appeal going out to the newly elected Salvation Army Global Commander General Brian Peddle & Commissioner Rosalie Peddle.

In concert with Mona Fortier, MP, Nathalie Des Rosiers, MPP and Mathieu Fleury, City Councillor, please join me in launching this Salvation Army World Wide initiative whereby I am inviting the Salvation Army to abandon its proposal to build a 350 bed men’s Homeless Shelter and partner with us in fully realizing Housing First in Ottawa and beyond.

The timing for this Worldwide Appeal couldn’t be better. Our federal and provincial governments Funding Strategies are now in line with this objective. Ottawa University Professor, Tim Aubry, has indicated that the tools and resources are now in place for Ottawa to enable Housing First as our primary approach to end homelessness. Housing First is just, humane and restores dignity to our most vulnerable citizens.

At 8 pm. I will present my Mayoral Election Platform and message to Ottawa voters.

Then we’re having a party featuring the band, Roots Movement. They perform amazing reggae and soul and they will have you dancing and grooving until midnight. There will be a licenced bar on sight.
