A 2024 City Budget for a safer, more reliable, and more affordable Ottawa

I’ve knocked on thousands of doors and attended hundreds of events in every part of our enormous city. What I’ve heard over and over again is that you want us to fix your roads and sidewalks. You want better public transit. You want more recreation centres and parks for your families. And you want us to support the most vulnerable.

We have to invest in priority areas but we also have to be fiscally responsible. We must use our resources wisely, especially at a time of economic uncertainty. And we must not add to the financial burden of our residents with big increases in taxes and fees.
