About

An inclusive group of citizens mobilizing to elect a responsive and competent Victoria City Council. 

 

Our vision is a City Council that:

  • is qualified, with real-life experience and a fresh outlook;
  • embraces thoughtful and respectful debate;
  • ensures that the interests of all Victoria citizens are considered;
  • makes decisions based on clear objectives, broad community input, best practices, and solid evidence;
  • runs the city with a focus on core services;
  • is committed to fiscal responsibility, and respects every taxpayer dollar;
  • is transparent and democratic.

 

Our vision is a Victoria that is safe, clean and inviting for residents and visitors, with:

  • an appropriate stock of housing that addresses the needs of existing neighbourhoods;
  • social housing that is safe, responsible and respectful of existing neighbourhoods;
  • fair and even enforcement of laws and bylaws;
  • a transportation plan that recognizes all forms of mobility, and that automobiles are still a fundamental form of transportation of both goods and people.

 

NewCouncil.ca candidates have been carefully selected to represent Victoria. Each candidate:

  • is committed to balanced representation of interests; putting Victoria’s citizens ahead of special interest groups;
