Brian Young’s decision to form Valley Vision: Leadership in Action and run for council came from a sense of frustration. The manger of the Pemberton Valley Golf and Country Club, who has lived here since 1993, wants things to change for Pemberton.

"I see our efforts not being allowed to flourish. I think our relationship with Mount Currie should be extremely strong. Our relationship with the SLRD should be extremely strong. And they're not. They’re broken relationships," says Young. "I want to live here, and I can’t see myself being able to stay if things don’t change."
