Brian believes that all City Centres should be treated equally and wants to ensure that each of our town centres get its fair share. The list of amenities and projects has to be driven by the community and not dictated by the City. Safety is of paramount importance to residents and business alike - without this fundamental need, we don't have a successful City. He learned first-hand how crime affects a community when he became a victim of crime at his home and business on the same day.
Transparency needs to occur in all aspects of our City, with Crime being the most critical. As Block Watch Captain he found out that property crime nearly doubled after the quarter had finished. This should be information that flows constantly, allowing for citizens to be aware of the spikes by area.
Brian lives in South Surrey and is the proud parent of two school-aged children.
