Ronald Telfer

Running for Oak Bay Councillor

What would be your highest priorities in the next four years to reduce the total energy use and emissions from transportation?

Will give it some thought

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?

Where will all the new space come from?

Would you actively encourage the provincial government to prioritize public transit, walking and biking infrastructure over roadway expansion projects such as the proposed interchanges on the Pat Bay Highway?

NO.

Do you support making walking safer and more enjoyable in Oak Bay?

Absolutely

What specific policies, projects and expenditures would you support in the next four years to make walking safer and more pleasant in Oak Bay?

Part of my election plan is to close down pollution plaza in Oak Bay and turn it into a pedestrian precinct. 6 cross walks, 4 intersections idiotic.

Do you support building a community-wide network of all ages and abilities (“AAA”) bike routes in the next four years?

Yes

Do you support building a protected bike lane on Cadboro Bay Rd to connect to Ecole Willows School?

Yes

Would you support completing the 24/7 bus lanes along the Douglas Street/Highway 1 corridor, as well as along other routes such as the Pat Bay Highway as a high priority for municipalities and the BC government in the next four years?

Normal priority

Would you support keeping the E&N railway as a railway and actively campaign for electrified passenger and freight services?

Private enterprise only

Would you support and actively campaign for street-level electrified rapid transit in the greater Victoria region? If so, along what routes?

Yes. Not completely familiar with every route.

In the next four years, would you support removing the requirements for off-street vehicle parking from new and infill developments?

Absolutely not, in Oak Bay secondary suites will mean off street secondary parking. I plan to ban overnight street parking in Oak Bay to assist Fire Department and BC Ambulance in their life saving efforts.

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?

Pollution Plaza will become a pedestrian precinct.
