We are standing at a precipice and face a clear choice: step into the climate emergency void or change course.
As a husband, father to four daughters, and a long-term community volunteer, David understands the importance of commitment, hard work, and fun.
As a graduate of Harvard, U of A, Oxford, and U of T, he understands the importance of clear thought and getting the facts.
As legal counsel at the Department of Justice and the Privy Council Office in Ottawa, and as a key architect of the transformation of British Columbia’s justice system into one of the most innovative in the world, David knows the innermost workings of government, and how to fix them.
Thanks to his experience as an organizer and volunteer at The Land Conservancy of B.C., the Habitat Acquisition Trust, and Mediate BC, and as an observer of elections in Haiti and Ukraine, David understands the power and importance of grassroots organizations and democracy.
He also understands the current government and why it puts winning power ahead of the welfare of people and the environment. David was a Liberal volunteer, organizer, and candidate, but left the party forever the day Justin Trudeau announced the purchase of the Kinder Morgan pipeline.
David believes that there IS a place in Canadian politics for ethics, collaboration and a sustainable environment. But the Trudeau government has shown that it must be forced to finally back its empty promises with real action. From issues like proportional representation, to improving the lives of Indigenous peoples, to making Canada’s economy a thriving green example for the world, David is ready to go on Day One.
A sustainable future goes hand in hand with a just future. Canada prides itself on being a just nation, that honours the rule of law and opportunity for all.
Our First Past the Post (FPTP) system is unfair because it produces results that only rarely reflect the will of Canadians.
