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

Limit the need for single car commuting

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

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?

Yes

Do you support making walking safer and more enjoyable in the City of Victoria?

Yes

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

Identification of what constitutes unsafe walking spaces, what cultural shifts are needed to address these, and what support the city can provide in bringing awareness. Since walking is inharently a safe mode of transportation, we need to identify the extremis problems.

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

It would be easy to say “yes” to such a vague idea, however without any detail of time line, budget, or structures of any sort – no.

Do you support completing the downtown AAA bikeway grid on Wharf St, Humboldt St and Vancouver St?

Yaaas

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?

Yaaas

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

Since when did the railway become municipal grounds…

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

Way too vague of an idea… I’d be weary of any candidate who feels qualified to answer that question. It would take engineering, accounting, planning, and consultation teams to even start a proposal.

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

Yaaas

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?

Mobilize city hall into rotational pop ups in village centers.
