Profile Questions:

What do you see as the top election issues? I think the top election issues are sustainable jobs, questionable transit system, oceanfront development, cohesive council, and emerging community needs.

What would you do to enhance the environment for business? To create a supportive environment that will attract new business for the creation of sustainable jobs and economic opportunities including:

·       by marketing the natural setting of Squamish to attract new businesses;

·       by providing relocation assistance in terms of tax breaks to new businesses;
