Penticton needs to provide a living wage. They need to lead by example by putting a living wage policy in place, such as done in New Westminster.
The young families also need to have housing that they can afford and is safe for their families. I would also work to attract new clean industry to Penticton with value added products and services; industries that attracts young vibrant workers.
We have a large senior population but we need qualified workers to provide service for them. I would also encourage activities that appeal to young families.
