I skated in the past but am not actively skating now

 

Do you support changing the bylaw to allow skateboarding downtown?

Yes

As long as pedestrians are respected and the relationships are respectful and not endangering pedestrians or unsafe for skaters I don’t see a problem.

If elected, will you support the continued implementation of the Skateboard Amenities Strategy by dedicating funds to skatepark development?

Yes

This is a great place for young people to get together and engage and build friendships and enhance their skill sets.   Plus, a place for people to have FUN!  How great is that — active and fun!

 

Do you support allowing skateboarding in the Cycle Track?

Yes

It’s transportation so why not!

I believe that skateboarding just as biking should be allowed downtown.

Some safety measures would have to be in place such as safety equipment perhaps but I would be willing to be open to the ideas and work with the skateboarding community.
