Village of Harrison Hot Springs: Jackson, Allan - Council Candidate

Q:  What one quality makes you most suited for the role of a community leader?

Honesty, dedicated, a decision maker, a real desire to ensure that our Community is Sustainable and our Natural Environment is always protected.

Q: Should council be working harder to protect the surrounding forests and parks from industrial development, including logging and run of river power project? Or are these necessary operations?

Council should keep the pressure on the Provincial Government to protect the 200 acres of Crown Land in Harrison. Through the Fraser Valley Regional District we hope to have this land designated as a Regional Park very soon. Unfortunately the Run of the River Projects are Provincial matters, however we must try to stop any development or logging in our Provincial Parks.

Q: Would you support the creation of a bylaw that would allow for care homes and assisted living? Why or why not?

Definitely, I would welcome Care Homes and Assisted Living in Harrison, they have a positive effect on the Community and would be a wonderful place for residents to  live and enjoy the Beauty of Harrison.

Q: Can Harrison really survive on tourism alone?

It is not always wise to have all of your eggs in one basket, it will be necessary for Harrison to diversify it’s  tax base by attracting new  Clean Sustainable Developments.

Tourism will always play a Major role in the Viability and success of Harrison, and we must continue support and develop new ways and methods of attracting Tourists to our Beautiful Village.
