I cannot sit idly by allowing the community I know and love to be any further eroded. With our new electoral riding the people who live work commute and play in Richmond and New Westminster are joined together. We share in the benefits of services that are provided by a provincial government. Education health transportation justice local government and social services are all responsibilities of a good government. From direct experiences I have learned the growing problems that we face when using these local services, from underfunding neglecting and hiding the reasons for decisions from the public spotlight. As I represent myself as a classroom teacher being completely transparent and involving my students in consensus building decisions, I am working with our youth to model the behaviours that we should emulate in all the places we will go.

The B.C. Greens are a true party of the people where the elected MLA represents their constituents first and foremost. My work over the past decade in this riding began with actions to combat apathy and inaction. I am thankful for the opportunity to represent the people who make me proud to be from this harmonic island community.
