What will she do when elected?

Everyone has their own lenses - here are Stephanie's:

  • ACCESSIBILITY:  Consider mobility challenges, access to washrooms, reduced sensory spaces, improving services online and in-person. Cost of services must be considered in all decision making.
  • ENVIRONMENT: We only have one planet and the environment must be considered in all infrastructure and housing decisions. Greenfield development rules, brownfield surveys, and dwelling bylaws help to support transportation options and increase community accessibility
  • HEALTH: All people share needs for housing security and access to support services. Whether attracting skilled workers, retaining youth, supporting seniors, or to help people going through life transitions, having diverse options builds the health of our community.

Stephanie's Vernon Actions to-date

  • Stephanie co-wrote a submission to the British Columbia provincial government, to the Finance Committee, to request forestry reform be included in the 2022-23 budget considerations. The main takeaways from the request were to phase out old-growth logging and forest clear cutting, as these practices make forest fires spread more rapidly. She wrote an article summarizing the submission, here. See drop down menu called BC Finance Committee – Submission on Forestry Reform

  • Stephanie was involved in organizing the RBC Day of Action event in Vernon on Friday October 29th (2021), with Leadnow and Vernon Climate Action Now! to draw attention to RBC being the largest financial backer of the oil & gas industry in Canada, and 5th largest in the world.
