It has been a privilege to represent Squamish over the last 4 years.
Squamish is a dynamic and diverse community that is seeing both the benefits and the challenges of unprecedented growth.
Squamish has a broad range of job and business opportunities for people to realize their dreams while living in an unparalleled setting. Whether industries are Knowledge based, Tourism based, Recreation based, Retail based, or Resource based, there is really no limit to opportunity here in Squamish. We need to create the environment that lets small business people thrive and do their thing.
However, increasing success has not been without its challenges.
I have spent considerable time laying the groundwork for and getting a commitment from the Provincial Government to pay its share in order to make the service a reality. Working with local and regional governments and First Nations we can put in place transit services from Pemberton to Whistler, to Squamish, and on to Metro Vancouver – saving commuters money, reducing congestion and GHG emissions, and making it easier for more people to visit Squamish and Whistler without having to drive the Highway.
