David Arthur Johnston
Running for Mayor of Victoria
What would be your highest priorities in the next four years to reduce the total energy use and emissions from transportation?
Initially to promote a form of cultural austerity worship, which would include the notion of living where we work and working where we live.
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?
I’d do my best to put the kibosh on building any new overpasses or highways. As well as suggesting that the single ride bus ticket system be replaced by a default of the $5.00 day pass.
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, but they are actively not going to like me, at first.
Do you support making walking safer and more enjoyable in the City of Victoria?
I do have a plan that will drastically lower the amount of flailing addicts.
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?
Again, once the threat of having to deal with publicly obnoxious behaviour is drastically lessened walking will seem so much more nice.
Do you support building a community-wide network of all ages and abilities (“AAA”) bike routes in the next four years?
No. We have no money, and I would be offering challenges (with awards) for people who can come up with plans that utilize municipal land and gear.
Do you support completing the downtown AAA bikeway grid on Wharf St, Humboldt St and Vancouver St?
I’d have to learn more but probably not, as the taxpayer is in fantastic debt.
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?
Would have to learn more about it. Is the stress on the road too much?
Would you support keeping the E&N railway as a railway and actively campaign for electrified passenger and freight services?
Maybe not, but how about a rail-sail bike system?
Would you support and actively campaign for street-level electrified rapid transit in the greater Victoria region? If so, along what routes?
In the next four years, would you support removing the requirements for off-street vehicle parking from new and infill developments?
Will be actively inhibiting most development.
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?
Remove the imposed threat of the addiction epidemic and start a tradition of weekly community potlucks to bring people together.
