ABOUT THE CANDIDATE
Have you held office in past? No
Bio: I am currently married to a lady from Mexico. I have two children and a step-daughter.
I am Christian, my wife is Catholic. We live on a small farm and I am self-employed.
I was born in Vancouver and grew up on Vancouver Island.
I had a real estate licence for over seven years and then was involved in construction and tile setting for the past 17 years.
I love the outdoors and think that B.C. is one of the most beautiful places in the world to live.
My concerns are maintaining our freedoms. And I think about what kind of future our children will have.
My concerns are also for our veterans and seniors. We enjoy what we have because of their sacrifices and their life long work. I want to make sure we take care of them and they can enjoy retirement with peace and dignity.
All Canadians deserve to have pride and dignity.
Each candidate for the Sept. 20, 2021 federal election has been provided with these five (5) questions, along with the following instructions.
To help voters make their choice on election day, The News is asking local candidates a series of questions on issues of importance.
Each question MUST be answered: yes (Y), no (N), or (D) Don’t Know. This is not meant to make things difficult. But reality is that if you’re in the House you’d have to vote yes, no, or abstain. The bonus is that each candidate can expand on ANY or ALL of our questions with answers of up to 200 words each that will appear online.
Please note, that due to space limitations, only one of your answers will be included in the print edition of The News on Sept. 16. You get to pick which one. So, you must CLEARLY indicate which expanded answer you want to see published in print. If you don’t specify, we will choose.
1. Would you support a federal vehicle tax based on CO2 emissions?
2. Does your party have a plan to fill the many staff vacancies in the RCMP?
Hoffmann: “Don’t know”
3. Would you support the federal government cancelling the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion to fight climate change?
4. Should Ottawa provide cash incentives to parents for fully vaccinating children, including vaccination against COVID, flu, measles, etc.?
5. Given our inability to make vaccines at the start of the pandemic, should Ottawa double its investment in research, science, and tech startups?
Hoffmann: “No, because we have to ask a series of questions. What is the official definition of a pandemic? Is the definition consistent with how the WHO and CDC define a pandemic?
Have we heard from all experts regarding viruses?
Have we heard from all experts regarding vaccines?
What are the risks associated with this new vaccine? Why are some doctors being silenced?
What is the data coming from different parts of the world regarding this pandemic? Etc.
Only then can a proper discusion take place and government policies and spending be decided on.”
