Why I am running
Again and again, people across the Powell River-Sunshine Coast riding have told me they want an MLA who will be their voice in Victoria. They want someone who shares their desire for economic, social, environmental, and fiscal sustainability for our community, for our province, and for our future. They want someone who will listen to their ideas and concerns and take them to the decision makers in the provincial capital.
As a BC Green, I believe in doing politics differently, in finding ways to put people before politics, and to take an evidenced-based approach to decision-making. As MLA, I know this will help get things done for the people of the Coast and the province.
We’ve seen people move here from Vancouver and beyond because they realized they can work remotely. That is just the start. There is a technological revolution happening, and we need to seize the opportunity it brings to build stronger and sustainable communities. It’s also our chance to move to the new normal in a way the sustains families, our economy, and our planet.
We also need resources and a fact-based approach to tackling the social challenges here in Powell River-Sunshine Coast, including housing that’s affordable for working families, seniors care that is driven by patients not profits, and tackling the opioid crisis that touches so many of our lives.
Like so many of you, I didn’t expect an election in the middle of a health emergency. But together we can send a clear message in this election that we want a new approach in Victoria.
