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

Inclusive community means our kids can afford to live here, seniors can age in place. Prioritize gentle densification, partner with non-profits, churches and senior government.

How would you balance Port Moody growth and livability?

As we grow and age, we must invest in recreation spaces, library, purpose-built seniors amenities and protect greenspaces. We must ensure accessibility, walkability and cycling connectivity, well-maintained facilities, roads, parks and trails. Creating more employment space in PoMo would strengthen our economy, family life and ability to volunteer.

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

We have an affordability crisis. Seniors are being squeezed out, families and youth are cost of living-poor. Preserve our public lands for public use.

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

This has been my platform for the last seven years on council. We must prioritize and incentivize the creation of more employment space. Work closely with investors trying to bring their businesses here. Reduce obstacles to samaritans who want to preserve heritage for commercial space on/near historic Clarke St.
