"Hear me before you see me..." Insights of a remarkable candidate for Ward 6

"Hear me before you see me..." Insights of a remarkable candidate for Ward 6 | Port Credit to Clarkson Community Corridor | Scoop.it
Blog: My Back Pages by John Stewart
Heather MacDonald's insight:

Rabia Khedr who has inspired so many with her intellect, humour, and leadership capabilities has set her sights on a new challenge.


This is an inspiring story in itself of municipal change in leadership for Mississauga.  As a grass roots candidate she challenges conventional wisdom on novice campaigners.  But I think she is well schooled in challenging and tweaking conventional wisdom.


One of her most significant statements in this article that illuminates such a remarkable person is a comment on herself...


"All those identity markers make me a whole person". "I want you to hear me before you see me".  And as she comments in this article, diverse experiences and identity markers add value to discourse.


To me she is a very impressive candidate.

The leaves are turning, and branches will soon be bare—winter is on its way! Get ready by preparing your home and vehicle for cold weather. You can improve your safety, save money and keep comfortable throughout winter.
Heather MacDonald's insight:

Tips to get the car winter ready - from my awesome insurance agent Steve Dunn.  His office is actually located in Ancaster but easy to work with since these days so much is online or phone to put together insurance packages.

 

His office is hands down the best service group I've met in the industry, and the rates are competitive.  I am their client and I always refe to them without hesitation.

City Licences Second Units - Housing Choices

City Licences Second Units - Housing Choices | Port Credit to Clarkson Community Corridor | Scoop.it
Heather MacDonald's insight:

On July 3rd the City approved by-law changes approving "second units" in residential housing as part of their affordable housing strategy.

 

This by-law will be in full force and effect in January 2014.  Do you have a second living space (bedroom, kitchen, washroom) that you rent out?  Will everything conform?  Do you know how to obtain your licence?

 

Check out their website here and maybe follow them for updates via Twitter and Facebook.

No plans to intervene in housing market, Flaherty says - Politics - CBC News

No plans to intervene in housing market, Flaherty says - Politics - CBC News | Port Credit to Clarkson Community Corridor | Scoop.it
Federal finance Minister Jim Flaherty said today he is satisfied with the measures the government has taken to date to calm the housing market and has no plans to intervene further.
Heather MacDonald's insight:

Gathering of minds outside of government feeds policy decisions, and Flaherty stays focused on attaining a balanced budget.  Those two points give me some confidence, and believe it's easier for government to digest the potential fractures in other world economies if they are confident in their own financial management.
