Rural Economy

Our resources are our strength & technology will make them even stronger! I started my entrepreneurial journey in Prince George. I founded a software company from my basement apartment while I was a student at UNBC, and grew it to an award-winning, 13 person firm in its own building downtown. Technology is the future of our economy, it will make our mills, mines and farms more efficient and sustainable. Our resources have always allowed our communities to thrive, and that won’t change, but these jobs are changing, and that is creating new and exciting opportunities for our youth. Imagine the…

Housing

Everyone deserves a place to call home. I’ve travelled all through the north and I hear one thing over and over from the people I have been talking to: “Housing is more insecure and expensive than it’s ever been.” I want to make living in the north more affordable, and we have a comprehensive plan that will make buying a home more affordable, build more homes and bring back fairness to Canada’s housing market. I’m committed to ensuring people have a safe, affordable place to call home in the north. We need everyone at the table to solve this crisis…

Climate Change

Climate Change is real, and we must work together to limit its effects. Since being elected in 2015, our Liberal government has been 100% committed to climate action. We are taking bold steps forward to conserve our environment for future generations, invest in the clean technology of the future and build back better from the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the road ahead of us is fraught with challenges, I believe there is opportunity for Canadians hidden within it. Budget 2021 positions our country to seize these opportunities with unprecedented support for clean and green initiatives. We cannot have a plan for…

Reconciliation

Indigenous Reconciliation is the defining task of our generation. Reckoning with our colonial legacy is an important aspect of every other goal we have as a nation, and it will not be easy. The Nation-to-Nation relationship with First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples has been a top priority for our Liberal Government since 2015. The path forward is not one for us to impose, it must be co-determined. Since the beginning of our time in government, we have worked closely with Indigenous Nations to implement the Truth and Reconciliations Commission’s (TRC) Calls for Action, to create affordable and sustainable housing…

Child Care

Child care is one of the largest expenses families have. As a parent, I know this first hand. Not only is the cost of child care far too high, but there is a desperate lack of spots for that care. We have made agreements with seven provinces, including BC, to cut fees by 50% next year and get fees to $10 a day in five years or less. Our plan commits to creating new child care spaces, significantly reduce the cost and hire new early childhood educators. The Conservative plan does none of this. We need more than a modest…
