What are the top three issues?

1. HIGH TAX TYRANNY: Oak Bay’s unemployed, residents, businesses and economy need ‘Oak Bay Tax Liberty’ from a stifling high tax regime. Radical cuts are needed now to Oak Bay’s residential property taxes, commercial property taxes, spending, hiring, borrowing, Council expenses, management salaries and union wages.

2. DEMOCRATIC DEFICIT: Exercise direct democratic control over CRD. Reject current wasteful CRD plans for land-based sewage treatment and cost-prohibitive LRT. Follow Responsible Sewage Treatment Victoria scientists’ recommendations, and give free bus passes to poor.

3. GARDEN CITY VS. CONCRETE JUNGLE: Four storey height restriction. No business license for abortionists posing as ‘women’s clinicians’. Stop ‘smart meters’. Chem trail ban.

Why should people vote for you?

I come with a message of Liberty, Life and Recovery for the good people of Oak Bay, and a warning not to follow Victoria’s ruinous example, with its scandalous neglect of the poorest of the poor, killing the addicts slowly with failed enabling syringe and pipe distribution programmes, its neglect of our heritage Johnson Street bascule bridge, and its never-ending tax hikes, growing bureaucracy and always expanding annual budget.

If the citizens of Oak Bay want an end to high taxes, high rise condos that take seven years to build, chem trails, ‘smart meters’ and abortionists posing as ‘women’s clinicians’, they should vote for their pro-life independent non-partisan candidate in Oak Bay.

What are the best things about your community?

Beautiful people of all ages living in a lovely human-scaled Garden City ambience, carefully bequeathed to us all by prudent stewards of the past.

Oak Bay is certainly one of the most desirable communities in Greater Victoria, and we all need to guard its present ambience against rampant philistinism, absentee condo landlordism and irresponsible Globalist high tax regimes of whatever partisan stripe that actually kill business.

I trust that the intelligent informed concerned citizens, electors, and harassed taxpayers of the District of Oak Bay, whether they be commercial or residential property taxpayers, will agree with me that a high tax regime has actually seriously damaged Oak Bay’s economy in the last ten years, and will vote to rectify that by voting for a radical fiscal austerity programme leading to Oak Bay Tax Liberty, Recovery and Prosperity.

What are the most vexing things about your community?

Unsolved homelessness scandal, neglect of heritage Johnson Street Bridge.

Secretive non-accountable Victoria Council, CRD meetings.

Annual Inflationary High residential and commercial property taxes.
