Rebecca grew up in the Comox Valley and wants to be a part of shaping it for the future.
Having worked as a hairdresser in the Valley since 2008, after returning home from studies abroad, Rebecca has had the pleasure of interacting on a personal level with people from all different backgrounds, value systems and professions in this community.
She has been involved in numerous fundraising activities.
These include raising money to purchase a sound system for a community hall, plus a contribution to Y.A.N.A. (You are Not Alone), and MARS (Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society). She has also been instrumental in raising money for two Comox Valley individuals in their fight against cancer. Lennox is currently involved with community campaigns, music and arts, event co-ordination and youth mentorship. She is presently retraining at North Island College.
Rebecca’s vision for the future of Courtenay includes continuing to work towards affordable housing for all and developing the city that makes space for everyone’s means of travel, whether by foot, bike, scooter, bus or car.
“There are many exciting and highly realistic urban design projects that focus on moving from a car-centric model of transportation towards road-sharing with other means of transportation. (What happened to your jobs focus? How about “developing the city that promotes decent jobs and healthy living, with road and path systems that make space for everyone, whether travelling by foot, bike, scooter, bus or car.)
“I believe that all people in the community should have access to services, gainful employment, affordable housing, and to be included and heard in decisions that affect their lives,” says Rebecca. “I have the time and commitment to dedicate to this position.”
