Name the two most important issues facing the city of Coquitlam?
Municipal infrastructure will provide the quality of life and minimize risks such as speeding, car accidents and traffic. A strong economy will give us more choice and job opportunities.

If elected, what steps would you take to improve housing affordability in Coquitlam?
The housing issue is all about demand and supply. I will work closely with the provincial government to supply co-op housing units, rental units and non-profit housing units.

What do you hope to accomplish as a city councillor?
Since March, I have been door knocking 20,000 doors. I spent enough time to listen to your concerns. Also, I have been attending the council meetings and public hearings. I realize that we are missing something. That is people. This council needs to put people first before they make decisions.

How can Coquitlam attract employment opportunities so residents can work in the same community where they live?
Having a good business sector in Coquitlam will benefit everyone. I will attract IT, green energy, medical equipment and dental equipment businesses to take office in Coquitlam. And the city will start the business incubator system for Coquitlam residents. So that we can have a strong economy and brand the city like Silicon Valley.
