What do you feel are the three key issues Abbotsford voters should be considering in this civic election?
3. Government Employees performing criminal acts.
What’s your plan to deal with homelessness in Abbotsford?
How would you make city hall more accountable and transparent?
Stop payuing for advertising and open public meetings. I wouild also prosecute some city employees for the chicken manure incident.
Are changes required in local municipal spending? If so, what are they and how would you address them?
1) Lower the bus fare to $1.00 because the buses ride around empty and the goal should be to maximize ridership, not a fare price. It will actually cost the city nothing to lower the rates because ridership will increase and we will make more at a dollar than $2.25 for a ticket price.
2) Cut the police budget by $10,000,000 a year in 2 years. Their budget is over $50,000,000 a year and growing and Canada is becoming a police state with the drug war. I would change the uniforms and cars back to Blue and White instead of the Black and stop the drug arrest.
3) Pass bylaw’s so all police officers on patrol had to wear body cameras.
4) Institute Harm Reduction Programs in the city to deal with the Drug Addicted Homeless and make at least 5 camps for the homeless. One for families with children, one for economic homeless men and woman and several for the drug addicted.
5) I would lobby the Provincial government to increase the welfare payment for housing, so the Homeless will be able to afford an apartment in Vancouver and not migrate to Abbotsford.
6) Put 200 payphones in the city with them being able to receive incoming calls. Also make sure everybody in the city of Abbotsford has access to an email account from a community website where we also exchange ideas on city management and improving city life.
7) Cut the pay for all management positions in city government and policing, because no government official should make more than $100,000 a year anyway.
