Elections Ken Boshcoff

Ken Boshcoff- Mayoral Candidate

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. 

A first step would be to 

1) Move the Shelter to a central location in the intercity zone 

2) Design a parallel shelter near the Salvation Army’s new facility in the north.

3) Improve the health services capacities near The Shelter.

No matter what location is chosen the pressure on the South Core business community must be alleviated.

2. 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?  

They proven their resilience and as I use several services in the area (dentistry, optometry, groceries, haberdashery etc.) the one thing that needs to improve is an uptake in utilizing vacant spaces. This I truly believe can happen!

3. 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?  

It can be made into a pleasant and safe area to shop and also to receive a wide range of financial and medical services.

There is enough space for creative and safe redesign of a functional community facility.

With a unified core business and service community bolstered by the removal of the parkade it is fair to say this is cause for optimism.
