Safety in a Sweltering City

Heatwaves in Hamilton can kill or do significant harm. Right now, regulations protect tenants from freezing but do nothing about the heat—and that has to change.

We must do more to protect the most vulnerable residents in our communities.

I’m Committed to Advocate For

  • Prioritizing older urban multi-residential buildings for climate retrofitting incentives.
  • Investing in shade and water features in public spaces to help cool down.
  • Consulting with vulnerable populations on the City’s cooling centre locations and practices to ensure it is serving the population adequately and act accordingly.
  • Support the City climate change office with adequate resources to impact our future.
  • Support the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s call for the Provincial Government to designate air conditioning as a vital service, like the provision of heat in the fall and winter, for tenants in Ontario.
