To say it’s been a challenging year is an understatement. But as British Columbians prepare to cast their ballots in the Oct. 24 provincial election, their vote—your vote—is as important as it’s ever been.

The results of this election will set the course not only for recovery from a global pandemic of historic proportions, but also the path we’ll take in the immediate years ahead. These next few years will include critical decisions that will impact the lives of all British Columbians, ranging from affordable and accessible childcare to seniors’ care and healthcare.

As part of its ongoing coverage of the 2020 BC election, the Richmond Sentinel is providing our readers with a unique opportunity to learn more about the 12 candidates seeking your vote. Through brief biographies, at times offering a light look at life, we introduce you to them.

We’ve also asked candidates to weigh in on issues we believe to be intrinsic to each of the four local ridings—the future of small business in Richmond-Steveston, the ALR in Richmond-Queensborough, the ongoing importance of replacing the hospital in Richmond North Centre, and affordable housing in densely-populated Richmond South Centre.

And, we’ve opened up the discussion to all the candidates, on another major topic of interest to many locals—the future of the much-debated George Massey crossing.

We also asked them what changes they’d like to see to BC’s public school system, particularly regarding funding.
