What Does respect. Mean?


  • respect. challenges attitudes, beliefs and behaviours that fail to recognize the importance of human dignity.
  • respect. teaches appropriate and constructive ways to interact in society.
  • respect. is a human right. This is a critical belief in a modern-day community comprised of people from all backgrounds and religions, of all shapes, sizes, genders, sexual orientations, ages, abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.

respect. reminds each one of us to treat each other with dignity. We hope this initiative encourages residents and businesses to create a more positive community that celebrates our differences and builds respect. in all aspects of city life.” 

- Mayor Keith Hobbs
