Protecting Oakville's future
as Canada's most livable town
Oakville voters gave Rob a massive mandate renewal in 2014 to show support for his program to:
- make Oakville Canada's most livable town, and
- make Halton Canada’s most sustainable region.
Rob's top goals are:
- protect green space and the environment
- control growth, debt and taxes to only what fits our environment and our economics
- support jobs and prosperity opportunities for all
- create and keep up our community facilities and infrastructure to meet the needs of residents
