Peter van der Velden

Independent for Delta Mayor


This candidate hasn't added policies to VoteMate.
They may still in the future!

In the meantime, you can learn more about them on their website.


submitted by the candidate or their team
Peter has lived in Tsawwassen for twelve years and spent one term on council in the Kootenays.

“In the construction industry I management complex projects and multimillion-dollar budgets. I am particularly proud of my environmental remediation work.”

I'm concerned about;
-proposed increase in production of LNG at Tilbury Island.
-location of Tilbury close to 85,000 litres of jet fuel
-grave danger to Delta with serious environmental concerns .

I will;
-freeze property taxes for two years and
-put ¼ of the mayor’s income back into the community.

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
The current council is in support of the LNG development at Tilbury endangering our community. People need to be aware of this issue. I'm also concerned about affordable housing for middle income earners.

I think council needs to recognize that coming out of the pandemic, the supply chain and fuel issues we need to move forward cautiously with community and the environment in mind.
