1. Do you support re-aligning municipal and regional transportation plans and investments to meet the provincial government’s CleanBC target to “reduce distances travelled in light-duty vehicles by 2030 compared to 2020″?

If it is practical and does not impede one’s ability to work, transport to places of Education or otherwise negatively impact the day-to-day life of Victorians

3. Do you commit to budgeting sufficient funds to accelerate the the walking, rolling, cycling and transit portions of Go Victoria?

By ensuring that there has been a thorough and comprehensive plan implemented that takes into account the interests of all citizens whether they be cyclists, pedestrians, drivers, seniors, families, able-bodied or disabled individuals. Namely City Planning must have cohesion and harmony between all the modes of transportation and that will provide for the the safest route.

I would need to study this plan further before commenting

9. With the court-imposed deadline of March 14, 2023 to keep the Island Rail Corridor intact, how would you support modern rail service for Vancouver Island?
