Here’s my response inspired by a supporter in Powell River who wanted me to tell the public more about myself:
I’m an issues based politician so I’m less inclined to tell people who I am because I’m less important than the issues, but since you ask…
I’m not married, never have been although I came close once. I don’t have kids. I don’t’ have kids because I haven’t married anyone. It’s as simple as that.
I live in a whole bunch of places. I’m a bit nomadic so I spend time on the Sunshine Coast, I spend time in the interior of BC, I spend time on a farm in Alberta, and when I work because I work in the film industry, I work all over – Squamish, Abbotsford, Maple Ridge, Toronto, etc. I live very modestly and while I wish I lived in West Vancouver I simply can’t afford it and don’t currently make enough money to do so. The film industry is such a unique industry to work in because I often work in different places for periods of time and then bounce from one production to another. My love is farming and rural life – so I understand rural people.
I was born and raised on a farm in Lethbridge, Alberta and still spend the majority of my time there. I’ve also spent a good deal of time in Montreal and New York City. I’ve also travelled the globe extensively.
I’m 42 years old.
The reason you should vote for me is because I approach the issues completely differently than any of the other candidates. Like the Green Party itself, I am the significant and only alternative to the standard traditional political parties. What’s different about what I and the Green Party do? For starters we are sincere, authentic and honest. Second, I think most of the issues facing the electorate are distractions away from real issues. Third, our platform is geared towards ensuring a future for our children and children’s children.
I should say that the webpage I have up and the explanation of who I am is a bit thin. I should elaborate but to be truthful I’m swamped with responsibilities right now: the responsibility to show my face, to talk to the media, to attend events all over one of the largest ridings in BC.
If you want to know more or want me to communicate, my phone number is always open: 604-727-4694.
