I support having a balanced approach … that takes care of everyone but not at the expense of anyone.

Hi there! I'm Kyle.

My Values

Socially, I believe everyone should be allowed to do just about anything they please, so long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else, or limit anyone else’s ability to do their own things. I hold this especially dear as a bisexual man in a world where the rights of individuals to live and love as they please is still too often denied, though I am very thankful to live in Canada, where it feels almost like so many freedoms can be simply be taken for granted.

Fiscally, I consider myself very pragmatic. I don’t think there’s one “good” way to manage government finances, but there are a lot of wrong ways. In general, I think it’s sensible to try and save when times are good so that you can spend when times are bad. I also think it’s a good idea to compare any new expensive ideas to the benefit of lowering the taxes as a good baseline of if an idea is really worth it.

Fundamentally, I consider myself more of a listener than a talker though, so please feel free to reach out to chat with me! I definitely don’t have a monopoly on good ideas, and the best decisions come from hearing from a whole range of perspectives.

Vision for the City

My Political Vision

More Affordable Housing

Affordable housing is a growing problem in Halifax that needs to be addressed quickly, because it’s only going to get worse the longer it’s left. It can be broken up into two smaller related problems: lack of available housing and the cost of that housing.

Improved Transit Options

Transit within cities is complicated. There are many competing interests for any given strip of road, and a very limited amount of space to work with. While I don’t have a single solution to fixing all of Halifax’s transit woes, I have some guiding principles to make it work better.

Community-Focused Policing

When I say “community focused policing”, I’m essentially referring to building trust between police and everyone else. As a Councillor, my goal will be to facilitate this.

Urban Sustainability

Every level of government has a role to play in addressing climate change, and the Council is no different. While we can’t make big sweeping changes the same way the Federal or Provincial governments can, there’s still a lot we can do.

Infrastructure Investment

Infrastructure is foundational to everything we do and, when it’s working perfectly, goes completely unmentioned. While Halifax has excellent infrastructure in some areas, this is hardly consistent.

High-speed traffic in residential areas

In many residential streets full of children, cars zooming down residential areas at high speeds are an acute safety issue, especially in streets without sidewalks.
