Grace called me out of the blue one day for a meeting and came down to City Hall to talk about how we could all help street involved folks and not turn our backs on these vulnerable citizens. She is a powerful leader who is dedicated to making change happen, despite not yet being able to legally drive a car! I am so grateful for her endorsement.
I am so happy that Waye Mason is running for councillor again! I first met him a year ago when I contacted him about my association, Got Your Back. Waye agreed to meet with me right away, at his office downtown. We talked about Got Your Back, homelessness and the lack of affordable housing in Halifax. Waye answered all my questions, offered some ideas, and even brought me in to update the mayor!
Since then, he’s attended my events and continued to support my initiatives around the city. I’m grateful he takes the time to listen and engage with youth like me.
Waye actually cares about the safety and well-being of people in HRM and I’m looking forward to working with him on these issues in the future.
