In running in the provincial election my focus with be on childcare and senior needs in the community. I support the idea of affordable daycare. There are a lot of renters in the Fairview community. Although they love living there the cost of housing is getting less affordable as house prices and rents continue to rise. Although Fairview has been densified over the years there has been an oversight in providing affordable housing. The ones that are there are in need of much updating. We need to create more affordable housing and my challenge will be to find the best way for the government to provide more in conjunction with the federal government.
My values align closely with the BC Green Party. First of all we are not getting funding from big business and labour as the other parties are doing. Both the Liberals and the NDP have had a chance to make a difference for BC but have failed to do so. Child poverty is abysmal in BC. There seems to be a confrontational way of governing and I want to see that change. I believe we can make a difference.
