1. Why are you personally running to be a member of Parliament?
I have decided to run in politics to make a difference in peoples lives for the betterment of all. i see that many Canadians are struggling and hope of achieving success is dwindling. wages are falling behind inflation, home ownership is becoming out of reach to many, and a hope of a better future is slipping into the darkness. i want to be part of the solution to re-instill hope to all Canadians, offer fairness, individual freedom, respect and personal responsibility. i believe that Canadians have not been a priority with recent governments and want to put them first
2. What skills and attributes do you have that would make you a good elected representative for your constituents?
A great ability to communicate with people, listening and exchanging ideas, team building and empowering people to make sound choices. the position of MP is not about one person, it is about team work and working with others in parliament. i am likable and personable and effective in achieving goals
3. What are the two biggest issues for your constituents in Abbotsford and how will you and/or your party address them?
affordability transcends all aspects of our lives here in Abbotsford. PPC will reform the tax system from 5 levels of taxation to 2, eliminate capital gains, eliminate corporate welfare, eliminate the carbon tax and reduce foreign aide to humanitarian. helping all Canadians is our priority. economy, with a lack of manpower we will need innovation and automation jobs to fill positions. this work will be filled with middle class income jobs. this would be achieved by lowering the corporate tax to stimulate investment, bringing industry in all sectors. Canada has fallen from 2nd to 14th for countries to invest in
