What brings you to NatCAN?
As Director and Co-founder of Grant Moar Communities I am committed and passionate about working with both key agencies and communities in reducing crime and fear of crime and increasing the quality of their lives through empowering and enabling. I don't want to smash the system or Capitalism but rather allow people to change their won lives through knowledge and taking control.
