Five years ago Peter successfully battled a life threatening illness. During that recovery he required the assistance of a cane which has given him a better understanding of the challenges faced by the disabled in our community. As a Cancer survivor he sees the need to maintain effective local treatment programs and facilities. As a fiscally responsible, non partisan, Regional Councillor Peter's focus will be on protecting taxpayer dollars while providing effective services to the citizens of Niagara. He will give special focus to Senior and health issues, Council transparency and accountability while ensuring every citizen is treated fairly and respectfully.
