John Wolanski says the senior most issue in this city is housing and crime.

Give people a home and they’re less likely to get involved in criminal acts, he said.

Canada is a signatory on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948, where the basic necessities of human life were enshrined.

As mayor, he would fight for Ottawa and Victoria to keep up to it’s agreed upon part in that declaration.

The second most pressing issue he said is a lack of viable transportation.

He would lobby TransLink for more buses and light rail along the north corridor from Whalley to Guildford.

His third issue is the creation of a civic society.

If we were all respectful of each other, crime would no longer be an issue, he said.

He will put the issue to referendum, then pass a motion at council creating the initiative.

That, he said, will encourage more people to nice to each other.
