If elected, what steps would you take to improve housing affordability in Port Moody?

I would support more transit-oriented development that provides better and more housing for growing families and potential employment opportunities. I would also continue to explore opportunities and solutions with Metro Vancouver and Provincial stakeholders.

How would you balance Port Moody growth and livability?

Allow growth and development in areas with easy access to transit; seek commercial anchor tenants to provide employment opportunities closer to home; work with stakeholders to allow residents to age in place with more integrated healthcare options; and improve amenities while bringing life to our streets by implementing beautification and active transportation plans.

What do you believe is the biggest issue facing Port Moody?

How do we best face issues of growth, affordability, and climate change in a courageous manner that supports newcomers, growing families and long-term residents?

How can Port Moody attract employment opportunities so residents can work in the same community where they live?

Seek commercial anchor tenants with developments around easy transit access that provides ample office space for mature businesses while also allowing start-ups efficient space to scale and remain in the city. This should include great local amenities and vibrant streetscapes that are attractive to an emerging younger generation of workers.
