Affordability and Housing in the Sea to Sky and West Vancouver District

 

It’s no different than any other leading current, post current (especially trump era) liberal community.  It’s a widely-diversified perplexing challenge.  One area that comes to mind is the Cosa Mesa and California surf community along with Snow Summit; or Denver and the Aspen Ski Company in Snowmass.  Los Angeles to the Ski Hills.  I certainly do not see West Vancouver and Whistler Blackcomb taking that approach however there are similarities.  Most importantly that we are not working together provincially with our warmer more winter hospitable communities in the north.  Lillooet, Kamloops and Kelowna.  The surrounding.

We have seasonal shortages, and as a reminder to new comers, its wise to keep 2-3 jobs for when the Ski/Snowboard and Bike seasons die down.  One policy we will initiate when elected are to help small businesses with internet services, savings accounts and investments.  It’s on my website.   however more importantly is immediately raise the wage to 15$ per hour.  It’s silly that we have two candidates who are basically mouth pieces (one) for a corrupt and to be criminally decided government in November (this year).  We need to raise the minimum wage to help with affordability.  Also housing we could utilize something like e-buses and better more organic and environmental transit.  In summer time, it’s great that we have so many bike trains and hiking.  What is keeping our communities from greater bike share programs or partnerships with private businesses like Giant and The Bike Co.  Have cheaper services, used and loaner bikes and maintenance at a discount.

Housing and affordability always starts with proactivness.  As mentioned, raising minimum wage to something that’s easy achievable (given our tourism, and high take in income) will always be achievable.  Maybe not during dead season but that’s why most of us keep, (had kept) 2-3 positions.  For example we know for chimney cleaning, Christmas lights, landscaping and roof snow shoveling.  There are seasonality’s.  Just like a server and bartender.  Liftie or mechanic.  Of course we all want to plan for vacations somewhere warm in February of course as well.

Another proactive area we have here, and it’s great, are the community services and hospice societies.  Many of Which I have volunteered at directly and Critter Get Ritter has or does business with.  It’s incredible to see so many others helping with housing and affordability in our community.  If we are in need these societies and charities will always be available.

Now perhaps all we need are our status quo politicians to step down. Let somebody new, with fresh ideas in.  Don’t get me wrong Jordan is a nice person, most people like him, he’s not afraid of too much. But he’s been in too long and has the same ideas as everyone else.  Small business and farming.  His situation hasn’t helped our housing or affordability situation.  Its perhaps made it worse because most farmers are struggling.  Especially given the fact expected high water levels are to rise, and our costs of living keep rising, and so on.

It’s clear we cannot all rely on our tourism or thing of the past (especially as glaciers disappear) we need to think outside of the box. Affordability and housing.  Small business and transit.  I believe I have that solution.  Your welcome to check out my platform and contact.  On May 9th, don’t subside to another 4 years of and vote Tristan Galbraith for Sea to Sky/West Vancouver MLA

Economy 2017

It is time for the government to reinvigorate BC’s economy by clearly outlining the direction the province will head in order ensure we stay competitive in the country and the world and develop in a way that will position BC for long-term sustainable economic growth well into the future.

Decrease the tax burden on British Columbians:
The everyday spending of British Columbians has a large effect on the BC economy. The Government needs to realize every dollar you spend generates the economy far more than a dollar the government spends because of losses due to bureaucratic waste.
Make the budget public down to the last tax dollar and allow British Columbians to help the government uncover waste and spend tax dollars more effectively.
By spending tax dollars more effectively, the government will be able to provide higher levels of service while collecting less tax from you. You will be able to spend that money on what you want which will help to generate the economy.
Decrease small business costs:
The government needs to work with small businesses to reduce the financial cost of starting up and running a small business.
Creating regional business licenses instead of separate municipal business licences would go a long way to reducing costs in the home improvement, renovation and construction industries.
Making it simpler to do business legally in BC will encourage a lot of business which is currently done under the table to become part of the legal economy.
The government should facilitate the hiring of unemployed British Columbians by working to make them more employable.
The government will create a searchable inventory of available land and buildings which could possibly be used for different types of short term and long term projects. Areas can be as small as a little patch of park available for a community garden to a large patch of wilderness available for sustainable ecotourism businesses. Making this list easily accessible will help inspire British Columbians to the possibilities around them.
Refocus the resource extraction industries:
The provincial government relies too heavily on the revenue generated from these industries which is hard to predict and impossible to rely on since it is dependent on international commodity markets.
The government needs to refocus the resource extraction industries in order to make them sustainable while keeping them profitable into the future.
The government needs to work at diversifying the markets for these goods so they will not be as dependent on the success of one country.
The government will need to work with forestry, mining, and oil and gas companies to make specific changes in each industry to redevelop these industries and ensure the revenue generated by them helps ensure their long term sustainable growth.
Develop a Green Economy in BC:
BC has the opportunity to lead the world by investing in the creation of a truly Green Economy and not just paying lip service to the green movement.
BC needs to end their practice of forcing all levels of government to buy “carbon offsets” from large corporations. These offsets cost taxpayers, and government branches like school boards, and health authorities millions of dollars yearly and the offsets bought do not actually reduce the amount of carbon created. If the government wants to be truly carbon neutral they shoudl invest that money in the green economy in BC.
The cornerstones of BC’s Green Economy will be: the Technology sector, the Sustainable Tourism sector, and the Green Construction sector.
The government can encourage the Technology Sector by embracing technology as a government and encouraging its citizens to use it, by adding basic computer programming courses to the elementary school curriculum and by opening up the technology training markets.
The government can encourage the Sustainable Tourism sector by providing greater opportunities for sustainable tourism businesses to access BC’s wilderness, by facilitating the partnerships between sustainable tourism businesses and other business that benefit from tourism to create packages easy to market internationally, and by making sporting goods, many of which are used in the sustainable tourism industry, tax free.
The government can create a Green Construction Sector here in BC by providing BC manufacturing companies greater access to BC’s resources to create sustainable construction products, by giving tax incentives to companies which use sustainable BC products for construction, and by working with certification organizations to ensure certifications are based on practical sustainable practices and not just techniques which sound sustainable.
Invest in cheap, environmentally sustainable, electricity on demand:
BC has historically had a competitive advantage in North America by having access to cheap electricity produced sustainably and available on demand.
This electricity has been provided by dams throughout the province providing a large hyrdo electric capacity. BC needs to invest in the development of more large scale dams to create enough capacity for the future.
Large Scale Hydro dams have traditionally been the key to BC’s energy needs because they do not burn fossil fuels, they have a minimal environmental impact per Kw/hr and the electrical capacity can be saved for use at peak demand times. Continue to look at increasing BC’s large scale hydro capacity.
The extra electrical capacity can be sold to other jurisdictions at peak times for peak prices enabling those jurisdictions to rely less on the burning of fossil fuels.
Continue to keep BC a desirable place to live and work:
Reaffirm a commitment to the protection of the environment for use by the future generations of British Columbians.
Provide improved access to nature in and around BC and encourage British Columbians to use it responsibly.
Work with newcomers to BC and work with areas outside of the Lower Mainland to encourage sustainable development and growth in these areas.

Platform Broken Down into Areas 2017

I purpose that provincially we push for:

  1. A proportional Voting System and Democratic Reform;
  2. Environmental Sustainability, and Protection of British Columbia Weather, Climate and Environment Worldwide
  3. Transportation and our Environment protected
  4. Updated and more current Judicial system and Public Sector employees;
  5. Greater Small Business Reform and Leadership,
  6. Housing, with updates to our forestry industry, manufacturing and the building code;
  7. More proactive Healthcare.  Stick at what BCs good at;
  8. More free Education; and
  9. Keep our Crown Corporations green.

Created using a more general, environmental policy ranking system hinged on common sense.  Average people can look up to my platform and understand.

It includes a breakdown of our provincial $2.2-billion surplus.   Provincially, from some of the highest contributors in Canada.    It’s awesome we’re all so fortunate here but as the leaders we need to do more.  Our average household income is over 120k per year versus the 50-60k Canadian average. Especially for our environment and as global leaders.  Let’s encourage and provide the greater leadership across all demographics we deserve or stop the growth and look elsewhere where there are greater leadership and need.

 

 

Push for a proportional Voting System, and Democratic Reform:  We need to push for a more proportional voting system.  Encourage young adults and youth to participate in democratic reform and our democratic system.  Initiate a well-known policy standardization opportunity for young adults.  We all should be given an opportunity to own land, resources, valuables and what we want.  This is what our ancestors intended.

Young people are no longer given a suitable hierarchy of needs.  They need greater opportunity for land, and buildings.  Not to mention business: farming, forestry, mining and related.  We need greater choice.  We need greater political choice.  Politicians used to be leaders.  Not long ago we purchased acreages for a fraction of the amount a down payment for a town home is now.  It has skewed young person’s hierarchy of needs.  Especially through voting we should push for greater choice.  We must continually re-evaluate our hierarchy of needs and make it more well-known.

Standardize voting for young people. Make it well known working and voting could actually produce results.  People that vote need to be more well-known and treated better than those that do not vote.  It should be more well known for all Canadians that our Goals and Ambitions are achievable here and worldwide, and through greater policy and voter reform.

 

Environment: Our corridor has a strong history of environmentalism and environmentalists.  Protect our air, water, and land.  British Columbia’s climate is worldwide renown.

Utilize and invest in a more well-known and internationally standardized environmental ranking system.  Examples could include the long-term carbon costs of vehicles travelling to Whistler versus a ski/snow resort in Brohm Ridge or Tram at Mt. Currie.  Another example is Temporary trailer housing in Whistler rather than everyone driving from Pemberton, West Vancouver and Squamish.  For Whistler locals, another example would be scrapping the entire bus system and providing cross country skis or bikes for employees to commute to work on.  British Columbia should be the leader in environmental policy and manufacturing.  One that is more well-known and context to international rankings and standards such as in Europe and overseas.

Public versus private companies competing including incentives and less barriers to entry for new, innovate and West Van-Sea to Sky made products.  Examples include:  electric companies and e-bikes; private power developments; and, easier projects with general barriers to entry that the public can use and understand.  We need more competition.  Here and to progress internationally.

Wind turbines in Squamish are a more proven and long term solution to LNG.  Place them strategically to prevent bird confrontations or simply net area off to birds entirely.  This is a much larger and better stepping stone to the LNG strategy that had and will plague BC liberals during their RCMP investigation.

British Columbia is increasingly a service based industry yet still has the old manufacturing and educational potential to keep us as leaders environmentally.  There must be greater provincial encouragement to block out trade deals that put corporate profits before our rights.  Protect the air, water, land, and our climate.  We must keep British Columbia natural and a leader worldwide in this area.

Here are 3 small ways you can count on our Environment policy, and commitment to the environment Everyday:
1) Encourage more recycling and report more people littering.  When elected we would encourage the sheriff, fire and other provincial to encourage more people to recycle and not pollute.  It is proactively preventing one of our easiest environmental mistakes.  We all become forgetful or don’t always have time.  Especially for common plastics and packaging.
2) Vehicles are one of the most common causes of pollution in British Columbia.  We encourage: greater bike lanes; E-cars and low emission incentives;  as well, greater benefits for small business and especially contractors.  Also: Carpooling, and greater bus transit.  Let’s bring back the hydrogen buses or manufacture our own electronic ones here in British Columbia as we deserve and the environmentalists intended.
3) Farm to table Agriculture: feed and agriculture progression includes products made and grown here at our environment.  When elected we would provide every household a pamphlet and information on growing at your own home or business.  Also where to purchase seeds and supplies.
Depending on our score, depends on our progression.  Provincially, and as one of recently unfound leaders of this progression.  Lets unite and create something we deserve and that’s great.  We would like to develop and utilize a more well known and leading global cost benefits approach to the environment, sustainable business and our Sea to Sky and West Vancouver Communities.  Its our place so lets make it great as intended by many of our fore founders and ancestors.

 

Transportation and our Environment: Incentives for E-bikes, including the local research and development.  Whistler is the forefront of the cycling and bike industry.  Why shouldn’t the Sea to Sky and West Vancouver be more well known for manufacturing them?

Administer and utilize a better, more well-known and participated transportation strategy.  We suggest to start a more well-known tax based pay system for all forms of transport.  Where is the money going when we purchase a car.  Where is it going when we pay ICBC.  Is it for staff, or the auto industry, taxes or government?  How much of it do we see back into our pockets in terms of jobs or highway improvements.  This should be more well know and at the very least a set amount going back to bike lanes and transit.  As leaders, environmental transportation is critical for our corridor and province.

Provincial there needs to be a ski, bike, e-bike, run, skateboard, roller blade and transportation and transportation committee.  There also needs to be commission for small cars, trucks; electric vehicles and bike transit. Tax larger and diesel trucks greater to their corresponding smog and global particulate emissions strategy.  By 2030 some countries will be emissions free.  With our forests and natural resources, British Columbia is one of the greenest and most ecologically sensitive places on earth.  Utilize some of Vancouver and Squamish’s leading traffic reduction strategies.  We have so many local experts in the area here that could commit to a more localized and long term zero emissions plan while not mustering the amount of successful businesses we have here.

Utilize a reservation or toll based provincial park system like our provincial parks, and other natural wilderness habitat areas based on number of visits or gasoline usage. Here is a suggestion: at the start of well-known natural yet petrol polluting establishments: Whistler/Sea to Sky, Duffey Lake/Joffre Lake, Pemberton Ice Cap and at the base of Lillooet lake requires a greater road tax for visiting skier’s ATV and snowmobilers.  Similarly to other well-known Canadian and international regions, it is more logical to support a tax base for visitors to Whistler that don’t directly own property or work here.  Extend Joffre Provincial Park and Duffy Lake Park past 30km to include Cayoosh Creek and at Ganner Bluffs and keep this area natural.  Of course, routine volunteer trips to the area, ski lodges, working or volunteering with local groups would utilize tax breaks.  Our strategies increase environmental provincial transportation incentives, and could help local municipalities remove repetitive needs and resources.  Property taxes, bills and thus bi-laws, bills could be reduced and money better spent on protecting our environment through the reduction of petrol chemicals and thus increase green technologies.  Our regions need greater environmental incentive and fitness/exercise for locals.  Not people driving here in for a few days to head back and pollute in their cars.

In the Sea to Sky and West Vancouver we also need more road stops with bathrooms, garbage and recycling stations.  These will have very low impact and will help with pollution and pollution.

Through more modern and environmental climate strategies we can best utilize a long-term solution to protect the air, water, land, and climate.

 

 

Public Services and Judicial system:

What is stopping us from doing more for the average people in our communities?  Whistler resort generates $500 million every year in tax revenue for federal, provincial and municipal government.  The resort is responsible for about 25 per cent of the entire annual tourism export revenue of B.C.  Our system is better utilized adding greater government contracts, renovating roads and increasing skilled trades then hiring more fire, sheriff and public servants.  Let’s make public services more manageable for everyone, and not just the wealthy.   Include more mental health, affordable food and housing as apart of our health services.

Make courts manageable and affordable for anyone with intelligence.  Provide more accurate drug and criminal reform.  We would Initiate a camping, mental health, outdoors, sports program that is second to none in the Sea to Sky and West Vancouver District.  Only BC could initiate this sort of program and I would like to make sure West Vancouver, Sea to Sky and Whistler fulfils this role.

Legalize drugs now but like Spain, Italy and other first world nations make dealing them without a license illegal.  Have water preservation plans in place now.  Have the sheriff and more divisions of government protect our water.  Not only our citizens.

Increase the smoking age to 21.

Encourage home and vehicle automation and get more police and fire out volunteering in our communities.  In and out of uniform.  There needs to be greater standardization of our needs here.  Not just driving around or sitting in office, doing courses and paperwork and vehicles.  This is backwards.

Provincial RCMP, Sheriff and Provincially judicially employees need greater representation.  My plan is to offer more long term leadership opportunities for these people in our community.  Put a greater emphasis on hiring people who have long term, and initiation of leadership in our communities.

Our system is full of repeat offenders and court should increase productivity to find greater, more positive mechanisms such as growing and operating businesses.  Not processing repeat offenders.  Initiate more well-known mandatory minimums.  Especially for repeat offenders.  Court and jail are full of people with disabilities, aliments, mental health problems and addictions.  Stop the problem before it starts.  We need proper attraction of services and mental health facilities for repeat offenders.  Rather than sheriff ticketing, transporting and arresting repeat drug offenders have them spend time in a cell with one and find out how to prevent the same thing from happening again.  Stop trying to band aid a broken court system and initial some sort of judicial reform.  It is terrible to have and witness this.

Initiate cost based system approach to policing and criminal reform.  Example keeping repeat offenders out of the system, on the street or best yet working proactively initiates greater points than a sheriff who works 5-6 days a week (overtime) in courts.  A sheriff that keeps a meth dealer off the street 3 months and not in court get a couple paid days off.  Witnessing the same vicious cycle of repeat offenders is insanity.  Like our environmental reform initiate common sense points system and a cost benefits approach for police and sheriffs doing good in our communities.

Justice reform always seems too slow and adaptive to political change (or any at all).  It’s the same thing with the courts, judicial system and social service system.  Let’s be more positive and correct a system that hadn’t really worked that well to begin with.  Putting a greater emphasis on hiring people who have long term or initiation of leadership in our communities is an excellent starting point.  It is even more important we have proper health care, hospitals and addiction facilities for people with disabilities, aliments, mental health problems and addictions.

 

Small Business:

 

Small businesses are the backbone of our communities, accounting for 90 percent of all businesses. I am advocating for policy and legislation that would increase small business access to loans from credit unions, allow entrepreneurs to grow tax-free savings to fund their new small business, and support the creation of business incubators that can assist small businesses with training, counseling, investment management, and other important services. In addition, I will work to connect more West Vancouver and Sea to Sky businesses with new markets for their products through the Internet, introducing Broadband for Rural Opportunities to provide adequate resources to expand access to unserved rural areas. As well, as to make broadband funding programs more accessible and user-friendly, creating a one-stop-shop in the provincial government to acquire funding and resources to deliver high-speed Internet to businesses and families currently cut off from such service.

 

 

Housing:

Job, tax base housing structure the resort generates $500 million every year ($1.37 million every day) in tax revenue for federal, provincial and municipal coffers, and the resort is responsible for about 25 per cent of the entire annual tourism export revenue of B.C..  This is up from 21.5 per cent in 2012.  Housing, a suitable wage and benefits should be guaranteed for the employed.  We need to guarantee short term housing and long term affordable homes for more Whistler and tourism related businesses.  Ensue greater benefits for employed people contributing to society and stop the freeriding entirely.

 

Health Care:

British Columbia needs greater increases in parental training and preventative reform, as well as an accurate and affordable senior’s management strategy.  Encouragement more healthy and affordable upbringings with proactiveness and prevention.  There’s more affordable sports: soccer and swimming before ski and mountain bike racing.  For all ages encourage a healthy living and proactiveness.

Greater nurse, health care training, health care practitioners, physiotherapist, occupational therapists, etc training.  More nursing homes, and care for elders.  We need a more preventative service training, especially for elderly and encouragement to not make the same mistake twice.  One of two physio visits for all British Columbians should be policy each year.

Legalization of medical marijuana with an increasing ecological focus.  Ie. From seed to stem.  Zero waste from hemp products.  Privatization of marijuana growing associations.  Keep the dope where it began and grow on the industry British Columbia helped produce and found

 

Education:

Create more mental health and disability awareness training.  Attract more youthful and male teachers.  More skilled trade and machinery training.  Greater leadership and mental health participation at a young age.  Make drug, alcohol; fitness and anger management teaching mandatory at a young age say grade 3 and onwards.  Also initiation of a leading outdoors, and camping school for the mentally ill, drug addicted or physically ill.  Greater emphasis should be put on not just an education but getting others who might have not had an opportunity out of a rut and more positivity.

 

Crown corporations:

Make crown corporation green.  Less bureaucratic, more competitive, and with increased ecological focus.  Driverless cars, hybrids, handheld electronics and e-bikes are the future.  Make crown corporations leaders, more competitive with private businesses and the environmental, and we’ll see greatest job growth here in the future.

ICBC revenue is around 4 billion dollars and they employ 5200 employees.  Let’s spend our money better. Encourage small business and don’t micro manage everything vehicle oriented.  Be not at the whim of the insurer but greater encourage small business with value and deals.   Encourage E-Bikes, trains and public transit and make incentives.  Make less commercial vehicle tax for business utilizing low environmental impact.  Encourage greater 2nd and 3rd vehicle tax or on tourists and rental cars.

Advancements in cars’ vehicles and motor vehicle cameras and detection systems also vindicate ICBC prepare to reduce employee strain and plan for a future where there are less and less claims and accidents.  Let’s plan now.

 

BC Hydro’s revenue is 5 billion, and they employ nearly 6200 people.  It’s great we have this many positions but our taxes need to be less and there needs to be increases in competition, as well as alternative energy driving costs down.  Let’s be more up front about where costs are going.  Why are they increasing with British Columbia’s abundance of resources, manufacturing and technology?  I recommend greater alternative energy usage including: wind, water energy systems.  Let’s encourage more private investment(s) in these areas.  BC Hydro’s rates are slated to rise by another 3.5 per cent on Apr. 1, 201.  If there’s no competition prices increase and we all should know technology advancement is coming.

Let’s make our already very successful Crown Corporations more Green.  Hybrid vehicles, less paperwork and more handheld electronics. Automation and less bureaucracy.  Even if it’s small, more competition against ICBC and BC Hydro will create greater service.  Competition creates drive.

 

About Tristan Galbraith: Decision to run/ Reason running

Decision to run: Stems from democratic process being unconstitutional.  To many young people, our identity rights and freedoms, including a right to vote has been dismissed.   Leaders always used to run in elections.  Not entirely but enough that it is well known and many, especially young people are not made aware and do not vote.  Really for young people the hierarchy of needs are totally different than one generation ago.  Less than one generation ago, owning house, land, vehicles, farming and building was entirely possible.  Unlike our ancestors, it is especially alarming that many of us in our riding will never do this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reason running: I am quite well established here and volunteered at numerous organizations including: Sea to Sky community services, Whistler Bike Park, Lost Lake Cross Country Ski Trails, The Reuseit and Whistler community services.  An elected representative is supposed to do something for everyone in the community.   As well I have helped out with the Lions club, young people and most importantly youth.  More recently I had initiated a Democratic Reform movement at Whistler and Nexen Beach.  It is important we stand up for greater policy, our youth and through proportional representation in parliament.  My business Critter Get Ritter has also been at over 10000 Lions Bay to Anderson Lake homes.  We also have hired over 30 members of our communities.  We are “Sustainably Focused On Your Environment.”

Given our success as British Columbians, we should all be the leader in environmental policy including research and prevention of global warming.  We could do more but not until we get greater, more conscious political and climatically leadership.  Including the need for an environmental awakening and leadership choice. Through areas of climatic reform and greater choice, I choose to be your greatest strength and representation.

In 2014, while successfully managing my business and homes in Alpine Meadows I ran successfully for Whistler council.  It is tremendous I welcomed, met and helped so many people here in our green environmentally conscious communities.

Since then I had seen a tremendous turn around and amount of new faces, especially in Whistler.  It has not helped for voter turnout though.  Many people have been struggling to find housing or affordable homes, groceries and costs of living. If everything is too expensive people are upset, and the voter turnout is poor.  It shouldnt be this way. I truly know and believe I can do something as your elected political representative.  In 3 short weeks we received 300 signatures for my application.

As mentioned earlier, for young people the hierarchy of needs is disappearing yet it should be something omnipresent.  It includes encouraging others to greater participate in the constitutional reform and electoral process.  Let others learn how to gain some of our rights and freedoms back such as owning and purchasing land; building, retail and farming.  It was shocking when I found out how little the under 40 demographic cares about provincial policies. Through campaigning and my leadership we could do more as your elected representative.
