Over a year ago, I articulated the Conservative Party's new vision that could vault our riding forward. I’m indebted to West Van Engineer and Thinker David Bromley, who helped every step of the way. The six components became the ongoing “Things That Matter” Webinar Series. As Canada stirs itself out from under a dark spell of faulty leadership, these “Things” are more important than ever.
Health and Fitness - You may join me in looking forward to a season beyond the pandemic, a season of rebuilding, of focusing on our community’s and country’s health. While serving as an MP in past, I initiated two relevant Private Member’s Bills that got passed (C-475 Tackling Crystal Meth and S-211 National Health and Fitness Day). Since leaving the House of Commons, as Founder of the Canadian Health and Fitness Institute, I’ve worked constantly to “Make Canada the Fittest Nation on Earth by 2030”.
Building our economy back to amplify our people’s resilience, attract investment, create jobs, and help small businesses rebound from the wreckage of COVID. We’ve had to hand out funds to all elements of our society to weather the pandemic but Canadians know that the bill will arrive soon. We need governments with vision, discipline, and accountability.
Fortifying our environment, leveraging the work constituents and I did together as MP, to protect our Fisheries Laboratory and clean up our coastline.
Bolstering Our Role in Foreign Affairs: As a Mandarin-speaker who lived and worked for a decade in Asia, I would encourage steps that improve economic prosperity and promote democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.
Improving National Security: We need a strong military to protect our people and to meet our international obligations. Borrowing from my work in international law and human rights, we need to enhance the safety of Canadians - at home, in terms of cybersecurity and abroad, against unlawful detentions.
Promoting equality of opportunity for all people, regardless of race, colour, or creed to achieve our objectives in life. Like so many, I recognize a responsibility to give back to our community more than I receive. Individual excellence and community responsibility together foster a sustainable society.
An unanticipated pandemic has devastated Canada’s economy, triggering enormous deficits and a gaping debt. Some of these consequences were unavoidable but how does our economic response compare to other countries?
