Mayoral candidate Brian Bowman supports the province’s decision to refer civic audits — including the fire hall audit — to the RCMP.
Bowman, who had just announced how he would battle homelessness in the city, said the controversies at city hall need a full airing.
"I’m so upset with what I’ve seen happening at city hall I put my name on the ballot," he said.
"I want to restore trust and confidence in city hall."
Meanwhile, Bowman said he wants to renovate almost 200 core area rooming houses if elected as part of his platform to combat homelessness in the city.
Bowman said today he will look at tax-increment funding to finance his plan.
As well, Bowman will add five new outreach workers to the Downtown BIZ’s community homeless assistance team — at a cost of $225,000 — and put forward a motion for city council to support the United Way’s Plan to End Homelessness campaign.
