Harvey believes a bigger WCE service can be a driving engine for the recovery of the local economy, and encourage more people to use public transportation, thus reducing carbon emission, creating more local jobs, helping with housing affordability, and transforming our "Bedroom Community" into an integrated city where our residents can live, work, and recreate in a safer, more harmonious environment.
For the past five months, Harvey has been working hard to advocate for the expansion of the WCE service. He successfully gathered support from mayors, councillors, and residents of the eight cities served by the WCE and organized a public awareness event and news conference on Sep 10, which received extensive media coverage from Global News, CBC, CTV, Fairchild TV, CKNW, Tri-City News, Daily Hive, and Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows News.
Harvey also wants to improve the welfare of our community by attracting more family doctors to practice in Coquitlam, and collaborating with the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem First Nation) to reopen and transform Səmiq̓ʷəʔelə (Riverview) Hospital into a world-class mental health research centre and care facility affiliated with the UBC Medical School and the UBC School of Nursing. Although health care is a provincial mandate, the City of Coquitlam can still take proactive steps to address our current family doctor shortage and mental health crisis.
Harvey is an entrepreneur and an advocate for sustainable infrastructure and community development.
Harvey holds a Master’s degree in science from UBC, and he is currently the Vice President of the Westwood Plateau Community Association.
