Vote October 15 for Esquimalt Council

I love Esquimalt- the mix of people, strong sense of community and “live and let live” attitude.

I’m running for Esquimalt Council because I want to help our community actively tackle our housing and climate crises and make Esquimalt an even better place for families, children, and seniors to live in and get around.

Over the next weeks, I’ll be out talking to Esquimalt residents about what they see as our community’s priorities, and showing that I can be a positive advocate for your aspirations for Esquimalt.


Like everywhere in BC and Canada, too many people in Esquimalt are struggling to find affordable accommodation. Too many families and individuals are having to leave Esquimalt because they are unable to find housing that meets their needs and/or income levels. While affordable housing is largely a provincial and federal jurisdiction, there is a lot Esquimalt can do to help make housing more affordable.


Esquimalt, like many governments, has a long history of setting ambitious climate change targets, and then not doing much to ensure we actually meet them. Rather than making a big deal of our targets and intentions, I’d like Esquimalt to start developing some concrete actions and policies to match its ambitious plans and targets.


Esquimalt is a great place to walk and bike: but it could be so much better! There are many areas that lack sidewalks, and many vehicles don’t respect speed limits or stop signs in residential neighbourhoods. Where they do exist, many of our sidewalks and overall street design does not meet current standards for safe and comfortable pedestrian areas. We need to make Esquimalt’s streets feel safer for children and adults so more people feel comfortable walking and biking in our community.


The most important role of a council is governance and financial management. Council sets priorities and ensures that progress is being made towards these priorities. Taxpayer funds are limited, especially now given the economic climate, and need to be used with great care. Careful alignment of budgets with priorities is important.


I’m often out walking in Esquimalt with our lively dog, Poppy. Please feel free to stop me to chat!

I’m also happy to meet anyone for tea or coffee – drop me an email at or send me a direct message on Social Media.
