West Vancouver-Sea To Sky is a microcosm of British Columbia, combining urban with rural, a mixture of social, ethnic, economic and political diversity. All the elements of BC’s economic history and future – forestry, mining, fishing, railroads, new technologies and tourism - are captured in this one corner of a province that is at once the ancestral home of the Lil'wat & Squamish peoples and a majestic landscape that proclaims British Columbia to the world.
Issues impacting all British Columbians are at play in this riding, my family home and playground for 30 years. I welcome the challenge of listening, responding and articulating our neighbours’ interests as the West Vancouver-Sea to Sky’s MLA.
My motivation to seek elected office comes from a shared belief that the story of a sustainable economy is not being sufficiently told and that opportunities to develop a diversified and resilient economy are being missed. The political choices in B.C. have been too narrow for too long.
Offering my advocate's record as a twice-elected city councillor, Save Howe Sound Society activist, Green Chamber of Commerce founder, a Board of Change director and career association executive, I am committed to putting my governance experience to work as your MLA.
Under the capable leadership of Andrew Weaver, the B.C. Green Party is set to achieve a breakthrough in this election. With your support we can move forward to not just a more prosperous future, but a far healthier one for our children and grandchildren.
