About Raise the Rates
RAISE THE RATES is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia.
Port McNeil. I am from the Comox Valley, but I currently live in Port McNeil. I am also a former B.C. conservation officer who made international headlines last year for refusing to kill two orphaned bear cubs. I currently work for the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources and I am seeking the NDP nomination for Courtenay/Comox.
Too many people aren’t able to afford full, healthy meals for their families, and that is something I struggle to understand in our affluent province.
I am taking on the welfare food challenge to raise awareness, gain a personal understanding of the pressures facing families, and push for solutions to a damaged welfare system.
