Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
I love our city and care deeply about the people and neighbourhoods who are all working together to make life better. It’s time we had a council that was working with you.

Vision Vancouver has a strong track record and experience moving quickly and responsibly on the issues that matter in our city. As a part of the Vision team, I know we can build a stronger, more compassionate city.

After 3 terms as a Park Board Commissioner including 3 years as Chair of the Board, I believe I have the experience and knowledge to help build a stronger more resilient city. Our City Council has been dysfunctional for the past 4 years. I have the skills necessary to bring disparate parties together and work in a more cohesive manner. We don't have time to fight each other. We all need to work together. Electing a strong Vision team at Park, School and Council will bring the leadership Vancouver needs.

Vancouver needs leadership on housing, climate change, reconciliation, and equity. Vision Vancouver has a proven record of these and more. I want to be part of the solution. On October 15th vote for Stuart Mackinnon for Council. Vote for Vision Vancouver.
