This website is primarily a historical record of the major political issues in my community, Richmond BC, that interested me from 2015 to 2022. Discussion of the issues and how to deal with them are from my own point of view. The Mayor and the majority of the councillors have seen the issues differently and their views have prevailed. The vast majority of voters are satisfied with the status quo. I am no longer participating in the political arena.

Richmond offers a remarkable combination of natural beauty, climate, country farmland and small city living close to Vancouver and convenient for travel up and down the west coast.
