Kay Hale, candidate
Kay Hale will be focusing her campaign on the following issues:
- The crisis for our Seniors, and in Long-Term Care Homes, is alarming. COVID-19 has taken a deadliest toll in long term care home resulting in 82% of all COVID deaths in Canada. Long-term care needs to be enshrined within the Canada Health Act in order to enforce national standards of care and accessibility.
- Affordable Housing: Allocation of up to 1% of the existing Crown land to development that will promote more affordable and low-cost housing for British Columbian
- Eliminate Hospital Parking Fee: It is immoral to charge for parking at our hospitals, and access to our loved ones, or for hospital care, should not be impeded because due to “Pay Parking”.
- Twin the Massey Tunnel and stop the $3.5 Billion bridge! Twinning is a much more affordable $1.9 Billion alternative. There will be less intrusion on our limited precious agricultural lands, less impact on the critical habitat of migratory birds, less seismic vulnerability, and less impact on the South Arm of the Fraser River. Additionally, no dredging or scouring would be needed, which if undertaken would negatively impact the greatest salmon habitat in the world.
- Passport Baby and Birth Tourism: Richmond is Canada’s epicenter for a booming, unregulated birth tourism industry emerging from China. Birth tourism accounts for over 90% of the Birth at Richmond hospital. The province must petition Ottawa to reconsider its birthright citizenship laws, to end jus soli (place of birth) citizenship rights.
