#CQvotes2018: Wilson running for re-election

Coquitlam Coun. Chris Wilson announced Thursday he will seek another term on council. The KidSport executive director said over his five years on council, he has advocated for more rental and below-market housing. He added that he will continue to push for an increase in the number of child care spaces available in the community. 

“One of my proudest achievements was securing a 96-space childcare centre when the new Sheffield elementary school is built on Burke Mountain,” said Wilson. “I will continue to work to make sure new childcare spaces are built across Coquitlam.”

Wilson lives in the Mundy Park area and was an Olympic wrestler before getting involved in politics, competing in the 1992 Games and the 1994 Commonwealth Games.
