Mental Health Town Hall Meeting
On July 29th, Iain Rankin sponsored and hosted a Mental Health Talk, at the Prospect Road Community Centre with expert panelists, including Dr. Stan Kutcher, Dr. Lela Rankin Williams, and Jessica Bower. It proved to be an informative, inclusive and lively discussion with community leaders, and people of all ages participating. One of Iain's priorities, if elected, is to host regular town hall discussions on important topics to engage citizens from all of the communities in Timberlea-Prospect.
Otter Lake Landfill Tour
On June 13th, Iain Rankin brought Liberal Leader Stephen McNeil and MLA Diana Whalen to the Otter Lake Landfill, and C&D Recycling, in Timberlea-Prospect, to better understand the importance of all aspects of the HRM Solid Waste Management Strategy which was formed on the basis of legislation introduced by the Liberal government in 1995. The Environment Act set the standard for environmental reforms throughout Canada (now North America and the world). Stephen McNeil previously wrote to the Chair of the Community Monitoring Committee, Jack Mitchell, in support of the current environmental contract and the past commitments made to the community.
