What are some things that matter to you in this election?
“Policy-wise? The two big things would be.... inclusion based policies and international trade/economic productivity.”
Why are you endorsing Mike?
“Because he exhibits the best kind of qualities in a person. A lot of people in politics are selling a dream and vision. People will vote from fear, but we live in a time when have the unique opportunity in this riding to make these changes that are tangible. Mike is one of the few people in politics that first dedicated their life, embodying the things they talk about, before ever making promises about them. He is leading through his past and present actions, there is no doubt for me about him.”
What do you hope to achieve personally/professional in your life?
“I have a bucket list going that I would like to cross off. So would really like to learn another two languages fluently, earn my black belt in martial arts and take one of my companies public.”
Are you hopeful about the future?
“Yes very much.”
If you could change one thing today what would it be?
“I love a lot about life right, but if I could change one thing… I would switch everyone's vehicle to electric overnight. They would have a much better driving experience and we would reduce GHG emissions around the world.”
What do you hope to see in a politician/political campaign?
“Oh my goodness, integrity, commitment, following through on promises, the ability to not only listen, but hear before making a decision.”
