I am seeking re-election, as we have much more to achieve for Vancouver's parks. We can build on our work prioritizing the climate crisis, promoting active transportation and 'reconcili-action' (action-based reconciliation), and providing accessible, affordable parks and recreation. I will support our ongoing partnership with the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh in co-management of our facilities. Community outreach is essential, and I look forward to working with all residents to create a vibrant public parks system.
As the father of three school-aged children, John Irwin keenly understands that Vancouver's parks and recreation facilities are vital for our city's sustainability. He holds a PhD specializing in sustainable urban development and is a lecturer at SFU and Alexander College. In his first term as a Park Board Commissioner, John successfully introduced motions promoting active transportation and universal accessibility.
