Endorsement from Pam Damoff, former Town Councillor and current MP Oakville North Burlington and fellow community activist.

"There is no one better to be Ward 1 Town Councillor than Beth Robertson. She has dedicated her life to service - as a teacher, coach, at her church and for those living with ALS.

As a former Town Councillor, I know Beth has the passion, commitment and knowledge to represent her constituents well at Town Hall. She is a collaborator by nature, and will bring her skills to the Council table to work with her colleagues to make Oakville the best it can be. When you vote on October 24th, elect someone who truly cares about her community - vote for Beth Robertson."


My Platform:

  • Uphold the Official Plan of the Town of Oakville and advocating for current and future residents as new development, infill units and rebuilds are brought forward. Note pages E-43 to E-53 for the Bronte Village Growth Plan. View The Plan
  • Continue advocacy for a common 40 km/hr speed limit in all residential neighbourhoods, based upon the outcome of the 3 current pilot projects (including Lakeshore Woods)
  • Request, through the Parks and Recreation and Libraries Master Plan, future capital funding for a community library (as the only ward without one in the Town), a refrigerated outdoor ice rink (as the only ward without an arena or refrigerated rink), dedicated outdoor pickleball courts for the growing number of residents in the ward who compete for court time at Shell Park.
  • Advance development plans for Palermo to provide a complete community for the Bronte Creek community
  • Continue to work with MP Anita Anand for a lighthouse in Bronte Waterfront Heritage Park. As the pier is owned by the Federal government, the Coast Guard decision to replace the lighthouse with a common marker used in all Great Lake harbours was not a Town decision. I am committed to seeing a new lighthouse erected in the park as a symbol of Bronte Harbour’s long-standing heritage for both work and recreation
