In this post I’ll be taking a break from my typical policy issues, and instead writing about a passion of mine, in hopes of giving you a better understanding of the type of person that is Michael King.
I received a question by email yesterday from a citizen of Pinawa. This person has asked me to post the question and response online so other voters can understand who is Michael King, and what does he stand for. If you too would like to ask me a question, go to my contact page. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Thank you for being here. Enjoy the read!
I consider so many of the entrepreneurs and business owners in town my friends, and I want all of them to be super successful! Those business owners who know me well, know that I care about them and this town. They also know that I’m a straight shooter.
I believe that Pinawa is in an amazing position to transition into a more sustainable, greener, and prosperous town, a town that is a leader, ahead of the pack. We can begin to do this work RIGHT NOW.
Ensuring that people can maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle will not only have a direct benefit to their health and wellbeing, but it will make Pinawa a more attractive place for retirees to settle down for their post working lives.
When it comes to attracting families, the quality of life for children and young people is of the highest consideration.
Pinawa is at the beginning of a tourism boom. This is our chance to define what sort of tourist town we want to be. My vote is to be more like Tofino and less like Cancun, and my plan will help get us there.
The natural environment in Pinawa is one of our greatest assets. Public parks, greenspaces, and reserves enhance the town environment, and improve the people’s well-being. They provide space for recreation and physical activity, improve our mood and mental health, and increase land value. However, without proper management, these vital areas are being threatened.
