It is important to attract ALL families and we can do this through providing the regulatory framework for entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams, create jobs and expand the local opportunities that currently exist.

Shifting our attitude from “you can’t do that” to “how can we make this happen.” Introducing a Small Business Roadshow to places like the Lower Mainland or Alberta. Provide them the strategic plan for the city and how they could be part of it including the top 100 reasons why we all live here!

And finally, pursue densification to make home ownership achievable and rental options plentiful.
