Mayor Clark in Ottawa for Western Economic Solutions Task Force; Meets with Prime Minister Trudeau and Deputy Prime Minister Freeland
Mayor Charlie Clark was in Ottawa yesterday for the first meeting of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities – Western Economic Solutions Task Force (WEST). While there, he also participated in a roundtable meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland and municipal leaders from across the country.
If you spent some time this summer driving or biking through City Park or Riversdale, you probably hit some roadblocks and detours. Block after block of roadway was closed so that the streets, sidewalks, and water mains could be reconstructed. Another improvement made during this time was that the hundred-year-old lead water lines from the water main to people’s houses were being replaced.
This is a moment when our citizens are looking to us as leaders to sit down and problem solve, to have honest and direct discussions to find answers to the tough issues we face. This is what I try to do in my role as Mayor every day and we need to do as a country right now.
