Harrison Candidate Q&A – Ed Wood

Village of Harrison Hot Springs: Wood, Ed - Council Candidate

  • Nov. 7, 2014 6:00 p.m.

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

My years of proven municipal experience in hands on and management positions which upon departing the City of Vancouver receiving recognition from General Manager of Business Planning and Services, Quote ” you brought a discipline and passion to the job that the city had not seen before”.

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?

Growth is a fact of life with change how ever I will not lose sight of our natural beauties that surround us. Logging should not happen in this area and run of the river power projects are a good use of the river’s power but must not affect the environment.

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

I would support care homes and assisted living if combined with other ages and abilities, this is important to a healthy community.

Q:  Can Harrison really survive on tourism alone?

Yes, Harrison can survive with tourism alone as has been proven by where we are today. This is a beautiful municipality with its natural surroundings and will always be a place of destination.
