The Platform

The Issues

Housing Affordability 


All citizens deserve an affordable and safe place to live.  While I don't believe that we have a housing crisis, we definitely have a supply problem.  We need to fix the problem by:

  • Creating a Housing Authority.
  • Advocating for accessible housing for our seniors.
  • Increasing & protecting available rental stock.
  • Further incentivize and fast track purpose built rentals.

Economic Development 


The majority of Squamish residents commute north and south to work.  Jobs are created by the private business sector. As a Council we need to improve our reputation and make it easier to do business here.  

  • Protect our industrial lands.
  • Fast-track commercial building permits. 
  • Create a diversified business climate.
  • Commercial property tax formula to help small business compete.
  • Improve parking Downtown. 

Local & Regional Transportation 


Create an affordable transportation network by:

  • Developing Regional Transportation network.
  • Connecting communities.
  • Public & private partnerships.
  • Pro-actively assess and plan for the impact of new development on existing neighbourhood roadways.
  • Advocating for better road safety such as concrete barriers to prevent head-on collisions.

Environmental Protection


The natural beauty of Squamish is undeniable.  We need to manage and preserve the land in a manner that balances development with proper stewardship of green space and wildlife.  Preservation of areas designated as green space, riparian lands and critical habitat is not an option but a responsibility.
