More electrical vehicle charging stations
Over the next 4 years, would you support increasing the space for walking, biking, and public transit and reducing that for private motor vehicles in your community? How would you do that?
Yes I would. I would like to see more bike lanes and a commuter rail system in place utilizing existing infrastructure.

Do you support making walking safer and more enjoyable in Esquimalt?
What specific policies, projects and expenditures would you support in the next four years to make walking safer and more pleasant in Esquimalt?
I am not sure of specific policies but I would look further into the options and decide on the best one for pedestrians. Better lighting would be something to encourage.

Do you support building a protected AAA bike lane on Lampson and Tillicum roads?
Yes, if it was safe and easy to use for all.

Those aren’t in my jurisdiction but I definitely do support them.
Would you support keeping the E&N railway as a railway and actively campaign for electrified passenger and freight services?
Yes. As stated above this is a priority of mine.
Would you support and actively campaign for street-level electrified rapid transit in the greater Victoria region? If so, along what routes?
I support it but would like to look into options for the best routes.
In the next four years, would you support removing the requirements for off-street vehicle parking from new and infill developments?
I am unsure of this and would need to research it further before giving an informed answer.
In the next four years, how, would you activate and bring more people into public spaces within your municipality, including sidewalks, public squares, streets and parks?
More events and activities for all people that enjoy. Also by encouraging diversity within the municipality which can lead to more diverse celebrations.
