Biography

submitted by the candidate or their team
My whole life and background in the Nonprofit sector, has led me to this point of great change for all of us. I decided if I wanted to preserve a world for my children, that has impenetrable individual, property and privacy rights, I would have to run for the BC Libertarian Party

1. What is your background, and why do you think your party is best to represent the constituents of the Nelson-Creston riding?

My whole life and background in the Nonprofit sector, working in the early days of Greenpeace, WCCW, and Gitsan Land Claims, to Slocan Reading Center and most recently the Humane Society, has led me to this point of great change for all of us It was in 2017 that I decided if I wanted to persevere and leave a world for my children, that has impenetrable individual, property and privacy rights, I would have to join and run for the BC Libertarian Party Our Party brings lower taxes, more options and real freedoms to the Nelson-Cesto District

2. What are the most important issues facing Nelson-Creston, and how would your party address those issues?

We believe that the most important issues facing us are getting us all back to normal, reducing greatly the cost of living in BC and to have a strong, permanent economic recovery. We plan on doing this by one, cutting regressive taxes like the carbon tax and the fuel tax and ending the "sin" taxes on alcohol and tobacco and marijuana. Secondly we will liberate huge swathes of the economy by ending all monopolies and repealing anti-competition laws and regulations. This will stabilize and invigorate the industries of insurance, transportation, health care, liquor and marijuana, energy, education and agriculture to name a few.
