Bio

David is 71 years old. Through the many chapters of his life, he has run many businesses, but is most known for his work as the Garbage Guru junk hauler. He played a pivotal role in the Appeals Court of B.C. ruling that recognized the right to sleep and subsequently lead to the half-justice of sleeping being made legal, implicitly, in public during the day in Victoria.

 

Why should I vote for you?

As it stands, the current municipal regimes have been deteriorating in conventionalism, having more concern with their careers than breaking free from the controls that have us locked in and slaving. Responsible government does not push itself into debt, at all costs.

I know how to delegate and ask questions. I will not be afraid of losing my job as I will not be signing the “Oath of Office”. Accepting that my term will not be longer than 45 days, I can scrutinize the entire process without bias.

 

Your main goal if elected?

To give the people the hop that there is a way out of this slaving hell we’ve all been caught in. The days of retirements and vacations are coming to a close. If businesses cannot adhere to the required austerity, they will collapse. City hall will become a hub of survival expertise that recognizes community as the only thing that will see the people into the hard hard future, with a 24/7 meet and greet space that will look remarkably like a tent city. Every bylaw will be scrutinized for constitutional sompliance and discoveries will be made public. Police will have mandatory sensitivity training with focus on recognizing conscientious behaviour and if the cop culture does not tow the line, they will be replaced by a volunteer force.
