My name is Louise Kierans. I grew up in Montreal surrounded by politics. My family was always involved in both provincial and federal politics. In fact, I remember as a youth canvassing in French and English in Montreal neighbourhoods for our favourite candidate.
We believed that it was important to do what was right for Canada, not just for our political party.
This has brought me to where I am today. I am now working with the People's Party of Canada, a team that wants to build Canada.
I am the right person for the Vancouver Centre job.
I benefitted from a great education at McGill University, graduating with a degree in Economics and Industrial Relations.
I have worked in small business with my husband for more than 20 years. I know the pains and successes that entrepreneurs feel. And, I have dedicated most of my career to leading not-for-profits that contribute to society.
If you vote for me, you will be voting for a candidate that will represent YOUR interests.
A Track Record of Community
Louise has more than 30 years of experience working and leading in the not-for-profit sector.
She co-founded the YoungCuts Film Festival in 2004, a film festival dedicated to the support and promotion of young filmmakers. She has served as its President for more than a decade.
In the private sector, Louise knows the challenges that small businesses face. Louise managed her father's thriving legal practice and works with her husband, funding and building small businesses.
Louise is the only candidate in Vancouver Centre with meaningful small business experience.
When Louise moved to Vancouver Centre in 2016, she was surprised how little that the Liberals, Conservatives, and NDP were doing for Vancouver Centre. So she decided to change that by running for office.
Louise is now working with Maxime Bernier, the People's Party of Canada leader, a courageous politician who tells the truth.
A leader with fresh ideas, Max's belief in personal responsibility and freedom is at the heart of his political vision. He is committed to changing Canada for the better. Louise shares this vision.
Our party will serve ALL Canadians fairly, not just the chosen few.
Our party is committed to these four key principles. Fairness. Respect. Freedom. Responsibility.
Militant Interest Groups Dominate the Conversation
Most of us consider ourselves to be "green." However, militant environmentalist groups dominate the discussion.
Federally, the Liberals, Conservatives, and NDP all pander to loud and militant groups. This needs to change.
These groups offer alarmist and simplistic narratives. They have a poor understanding of energy's role in economic growth.
These militant groups do not represent the quiet majority. And, they crowd out citizens' concerns about local environmental issues.
Time to Clean Up False Creek
I am very concerned that our federal government ignores Vancouver Centre's local environmental issues.
While the Liberals and Conservatives have been in power, they have failed to reduce pollution in False Creek and have failed to protect our Vancouver Centre waterway.
Here's a photo of what I saw in June, while walking along False Creek.
And, here is a photo of what I saw on Sunset Beach on Canada Day:
Many people are unaware that False Creek comes under federal jurisdiction and that its E.coli levels are dangerous.
I care about local issues. I will ensure that the Federal government acknowledges the environmental attack on False Creek and that it is cleaned up.
Let's make this water clean so that our families, friends, neighbours, and visitors can safely swim in the water and confidently enjoy water activities.
If you want False Creek to be cleaned up and Vancouver Centre to thrive, elect me. If you want the same poor results, vote for the Liberals, NDP, and Conservatives.
Vote Louise Kierans in Vancouver Centre.
