Work Done To Date
Work Done To Date
My policy focus in the 2018 campaign was on housing, health and wellness and on solid financial management of your tax dollars. My goals were to have us all work together to build a ‘Better Burnaby’. Highlights of work done to date:
I promised to set up a task force on housing. Job done, report completed, accepted and being implemented.
The four major themes of the report are:
- Create livable Neighbourhoods
- Invest in Housing Partnerships
- Support Rental Housing and Tenants and
- Promote Innovative Housing Policy and Build Capacity
✔️ BURNABY HOSPITAL
Finally, and thankfully – a full commitment of $1.3 Billion and more.
We have needed this expansion for years. I made a commitment to help push things along and we must extend a big thank you to the Province of BC and to the Fraser Health Authority for their work on our behalf.

We have much more work to do together. Stay safe and keep updated.
Covid-19 came upon us quickly and we have worked well together to bend the curve – but, we have more work to do.
The fall of 2020 will be a challenge for us all. We worked with the Burnaby Division of Family Health to set up a testing site at Central Park and all our parks and city services now comply with all health/COVID protocols.

✔️ Listening, Understanding and Working Together
I have continued my commitment to listening to you and have also learned from our many walks through our Burnaby parks. I thank our council members for their input and support and heap thanks on our civic staff for their energy as they tackle our community needs. Have a look at just some of the jobs underway:
New South Burnaby Arena: two NHL sized arenas
Cameron Recreation Centre and Library
Burnaby Lake Aquatic & Arena: Replaces the aging CG Brown Pool
Central Park Perimeter Trail
✔️ Burnaby Mountain Gondola
Council supports the project subject to conditions:
I support the gondola to SFU. And, we listened to your concerns over the route options. In May 2019, Council officially endorsed the project subject to several conditions. One such condition was to include the assessment of a third route option starting from Lake City Way Station, which has been done as part of technical work throughout 2020.
