Knocking on doors and interrupting residents while they go about their day is one of the most unnerving parts of an election to new candidates. Stories abound about doors being slammed, voices being raised and accusations of "you're all the same", but in fact, I can count on one hand the number of times that this has happened in the over 15,000 doors that I've knocked on.
Residents typically want to share their thoughts, either immediately or by phone, email and twitter after the fact. Ideas are as vast as the topics ranging from traffic safety (a big one in most neighbourhoods) to crime, to the Riverview lands and of course TAXES and better money management at City Hall.
My main purpose in door knocking ( and if elected, I pledge to continue doing it monthly after the election) is to gather information and ideas to make our neighbourhoods better. We're going to make this city a better place one neighbourhood at a time, so please share your thoughts about the issues relevant to you and your neighbours.
