I am running as an independent candidate for Saanich council because the progression of our community has been stalled.
This lack of movement is displayed quite literally whenever we travel along McKenzie Avenue toward Burnside or Highway 1. It is time to support clear and detailed regional transportation planning. Planning that will create vibrant neighbourhoods, encourage sustainable growth, and acknowledge our obligations to the environment.
Saanich is the largest municipality in the CRD. Big municipalities have big problems, and it is time for leadership that addresses the responsibility we have to solve these problems. If we do not lead on issues such as transportation and affordable, accessible housing, we will end up allowing others to make decisions that affect the quality of life in our neighbourhoods.
We are all partners in the evolution of Saanich. It is time to start challenging each other to share solutions that will move our community forward.
If you’re as tired of waiting for action as I am, vote Rob Wickson for Saanich council and CRD on November 19th.
