Dr. Herath "Advocating Change"

- Economic Recovery and Job Creation: The Liberal & NDP ruling has significantly impacted local businesses and employment. Supporting economic recovery and creating job opportunities are top priorities. Encouraging investment, fostering innovation, and diversifying industries will contribute to sustainable growth and prosperity.

 

- Community Safety and Crime Prevention: Residents deserve safe neighborhoods. Addressing crime rates, enhancing community policing, and supporting local law enforcement are important for community well-being. Initiatives to prevent property crime and improve safety will help maintain the quality of life in our riding.

- Healthcare Access and Services: Ensuring accessible healthcare services, including ER, hospitals, clinics, and mental health support, is critical. Ongoing advocacy for healthcare funding and infrastructure improvements is necessary to meet the community’s needs.

- Climate and Environmental Protection: Burnaby North - Seymour boasts beautiful natural landscapes, parks, waterways, and wildlife. Protecting these are our top priorities. Residents are passionate about sustainable development, reducing emissions, and preserving our green spaces for future generations.


- Traffic Congestion and Infrastructure: Our riding experiences severe traffic congestion due to its proximity to Vancouver and a growing population. Improving public transportation, enhancing road infrastructure, and addressing traffic bottlenecks are essential to ease this congestion and improve daily commutes.

 

-Housing Affordability: Like many urban areas, Burnaby North - Seymour faces significant challenges related to housing affordability. The high cost of both owning and renting homes is a pressing issue for many residents. Implementing policies for affordable housing, and increasing housing supply are crucial steps to address this concern.


- Education and Schools: Quality education is vital for families in our riding. We need to advocate for well-funded schools, adequate resources, and strong teacher support. Addressing over-crowding and ensuring safe, conducive learning environments are key concerns for children, parents and educators alike.
