Brian LePas

Improved and open communication

Three questions for city council candidates – Brian LePas

1. In the immediate future, the Campbell River area will be home to high technology industries and above ground fish farms – both providing good paying jobs. Cultural tourism will emerge as a bona fide revenue stream in the overall tourism industry. When the cruise ships dock, passengers are in awe.

Retirees and seniors have flocked to Campbell River because of those who had the vision to establish an infrastructure in which seniors and retirees thrive, and a new hospital that serves all of us well. Families and their children benefit from low tax rates and ample community services.

2. Since 2005 I have been involved in the goings-on at City Hall and within Campbell River. I was there on the Myrt Thompson Trail when Walmart wanted our estuary for a parking lot. I was there when Mayor Roger McDonnell tried to muzzle citizens by stating that petitions were useless and served no purpose (3,000 signature petition re: 3.5 acres, 11/22/06) – I was there. I’ll continue to be there – as a councillor – with my highly functioning moral compass intact.

On Nov. 19, I most humbly ask for your trust, support and most importantly, your vote.

3. Improved and open communication could start with our new mayor allowing councillors to speak to the media and allowing councillors voting record to be public.
