Thank you to the many citizens who answered my request for letters about the Natural Environment. These letters contained thoughtful insights into the feelings of the community regarding this important asset. I am pleased to write that we are making good progress in promoting the Environment as one of the core pillars of our Economy.Continue reading “June Highlights”
Attracting economic development and investment is part of ensuring our future economic sustainability. Being able to bring a specialized high tech operation to a small town is a big opportunity.
We must work with our community partners to find innovative ways to organize and systematically protect both the environment, and the economic benefit that such protection brings.
I would like to share with you a question posed to me by a the Pinawa Friends of the Trans Canada Trail. The volunteer group has invited me to post this here so the public can better understand my position on this issue. You can read the question, and my response here.
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 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.
