Elections Lori Paras

Lori Paras – McKellar Candidate

I have always believed that revitalization of a downtown core area needs several key factors. Entrepreneurs, political will, financial investment, community and stakeholder support and a great tourist attraction.

I have attached a plan I helped develop to address the questions you have asked. The south side of McKellar Ward needs investment and a clear strategy to move it forward after the demolition of Victoriaville. Here is that plan titled “Tale of Two Cities”.


  1. Businesses are frequently the targets of crime and on the front line dealing with societal problems in the area; what steps do you think should be taken to ensure businesses are protected and our community is safer to explore, shop, work and play in.



  1. What is your impression of the Fort William Business community? What is one thing that is done well and what is one thing that needs to improve?



  1. With the revitalization of downtown Fort William project underway there is no planned community center for the area after the project is completed. Victoriaville provided an important and safe gathering place. What vision do you have to recreate a similar environment for community connectivity?
