1/ Do you support Bricks-and-mortar marijuana stores in your municipality? Why? Why not?
No I would not support bricks and mortar marijuana stores in our municipality. There are a lot of questions that I do not have answers for at this point. Until I have those answers, we see how this rolls out, and have a chance as council to have discussions on the pro and cons, I would not be in support. There would always the opportunity to support marijuana stores at a later date.
2/What would be your main priority if elected to council?
I have two main priorities if elected to council. The first one would be to put some regulations in place for short term rentals. This issue has become a huge problem in our municipality and I do not think it’s a good idea to turn a blind eye any longer. Second would be to address some issues in our Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw and once that is complete, get it passed.
3/How to you plan to address growth in some parts of the municipality while also handling the tourism influx in the area?
I believe we need to start working on creating a long term vision. We can no longer just deal with things as they are put in front of us. The municipality needs to find a balance between the residents enjoyment and the massive influx of tourists. We also need to find the healthy balance between development and growth and the environment. I see our environment as very important as it is what makes us who we are. A world Biosphere.
