I am absolutely thrilled to be named as the BC Green Party candidate for the Powell River – Sunshine Coast Riding. I want to be your active and vocal advocate in the BC Legislature to help build a reliable future. I strongly believe that elected officials should be held to a higher standard of morals and ethics and want to be a leader who makes decisions for no other reason that it is the best thing for my community. As a Chamber of Commerce President and local businesswoman, I believe that the BC Green Party is the only party who has the vision and desire to foster and grow replacement industries, so that we have jobs to transition to as we commence the managed decline of the fossil fuel industry. We can have well paying jobs, a strong economy and protect the environment at the same time.
I am deeply concerned about a number of “game changing” issues, such Vancouver Coastal Health’s announcement to essentially privatize seniors care, Housing unaffordability, Fixed Link, Woodfibre LNG, Kinder Morgan pipeline. I want to hear your concerns and welcome formal and informal chats as we work through these and other important issues together.
