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.
