NOOSE

HI I'M WENDYTHIRTEEN....

....AND IM AN INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR VANCOUVER CITY COUNCIL

THIS IS MY 3RD TIME RUNNING AS I LIKE TO STIR THE POT AND GIVE THE PEOPLE OF VANCOUVER A DIFFERENT OPTION TO CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO

I RUN A DIY CAMPAIGN WITH NO DONATIONS FROM CORPORATIONS

I DO NOT REPRESENT ANY SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS OR POLITICAL PARTIES

THUS MY APPROACH IS FAIRLY GRASSROOTS WITH EQUALITY FOR ALL AS MY FOCUS

I APPLAUD THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT AND THANK THE PROTESTERS WHO ARE STANDING UP AND HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE CORPORATE ATTITUDES THAT SEEM TO PLAGUE AND RULE OUR GOVERNMENTS

I HOPE TO REPRESENT THOSE VANCOUVERITES THAT ARE READY FOR CHANGE

I VOW TO REPRESENT ALL SEGMENTS OF SOCIETY NOT JUST THE ELITE

I CURRENTLY WORK IN THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY BRINGING LIVE MUSIC TO THE DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE

I BELIEVE THAT MY EXPERIENCES CARVING OUT A CULTURAL HUB FOR MY SUBCULTURE WOULD BRING A REFRESHING CHANGE TO TACKLING THE CITYS PROBLEMS

I WORKED HARD WITH MANY VOLUNTEERS AND FOUGHT AGAINST SLUMLORDS FOR A DECADE TO ESTABLISH A PLACE FOR UNDERGROUND MUSIC. WE UPCYCLED VIRTUAL SHITHOLES INTO VIABLE LIVE MUSIC VENUES

I UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES THAT CONCERN THE ORDINARY PERSON AS WELL AS THE DISENFRANCHISED IN THE DTES AS I INTERACTED WITH THESE MANY SEGMENTS OF SOCIETY DAILY

I HAVE A FEW IDEAS I THINK WOULD MAKE VANCOUVER BETTER STARTING WITH TRANSIT

IF IT CANT BE 24 HOUR SKYTRAIN HOW ABOUT 22 HOUR SKYTRAIN

BAR GOERS WOULD HAVE A SAFE ECONOMICAL WAY HOME...CABS WOULD STILL MAKE MONEY BY SETTING UP TAXI STANDS AT TRAIN STATIONS FOR THE FINAL JAUNT HOME...SHIFT WORKERS COULD START VIABLY USING TRANSIT...

I WOULD ALSO IMPLEMENT PORTABLE URINALS IN THE DOWNTOWN AND GASTOWN ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICTS SIMILAR TO WHAT VICTORIA USES TO CREATE A MORE PLEASANT ATMOSPHERE FOR BUSINESSES TO ARRIVE TO IN THE MORNING

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE CITY HIRE BINNERS WITH SILENT CARTS TO SERVICE THE CITY WITH THEIR OWN DEPOT IN THE WEST END

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE FREE BIKE STANDS DOWNTOWN LIKE EUROPE HAS

AND ID REALLY LIKE TO FOCUS ON THE REVOLVING DOOR JUSTICE SYSTEM WITH ADDICTS.... IF THEIR ADDICTION CAUSES CRIMINALITY I BELIEVE THAT A DETOX INTERVENTION IS NECESSARY.

OFTEN THE FAMILIES OF THE ADDICTS HAVE WASHED THEIR HANDS OF THE INDIVIDUAL WHEN THEIR BEHAVIOR TURNED NEGATIVE

I BELIEVE THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE HAS TO BECOME THAT FAMILY TO RESTORE THAT PERSON BACK TO SOCIETY

SUPERVISED DETOX NEEDS TO BE THAT OPTION ESPECIALLY FOCUSING ON THE MENTAL HEALTH ASPECTS THAT ARE THE ROOT THAT CAUSED THE ADDICTION IN THE FIRST PLACE..


I APOLOGIZE THAT this WEBSITE IS A BIT OUTDATED BUT THE GENERAL DIRECTION OF WHAT I BELIEVE IS OUTLINED HERE

THANK YOU FOR READING

...XOXOXO....W13
