RICHMOND CITIZENS (RCA)
I am a lifetime resident of Richmond, graduating from Richmond High. I am a farmer and former teacher with a BSc in Agroecology from UBC and a Secondary Science and Art Education certificate. As Richmond's MLA in 1973 I was a main founder of the ALR.
On Richmond Council as chair of the Parks and Recreation Committee I led in saving Garry Point, Terra Nova and the Garden City Lands. I am appalled at the money laundering in our casino and real estate, and the recent approval of 10,724 sq. ft. mega-mansions in the ALR. (1,274 more could take up over 300 acres of farmland.)
I am running again to continue protecting farmland, developing parks and community facilities, heritage and waterfront, planning energy alternatives and dyke improvements to compensate for climate change, and promoting affordable housing, public transit and food security to improve the lives of all Richmond citizens.
