Stu MacInnis: Lifelong Valley resident wants to represent

City of Courtenay: MacInnis, Stu - Council candidate

Stuart MacInnis

My name is Stu MacInnis and once again I would like to declare myself a candidate in the upcoming Courtenay municipal election.

I was born and raised here in the Comox Valley and graduated from G.P. Vanier in 1998. Over the years I’ve watched our community grow and evolve. Volunteering at Glacier View Lodge care facility has given me the opportunity to learn how many of our senior residents view our community and the direction it’s taking.

I want to be a voice that is fair, reasonable and inclusive. I want to work for the residents of Courtenay, to help our community grow and prosper.

Although progress is inevitable and positive, I look at development from the both the perspectives of “Can that land be developed?” as well as “Should that land be developed?”

I feel that there are some areas of our community too precious to give up to residential or commercial development.

I’m concerned that so many of the issues that were prominent in the last election are still facing us. Why is the fate of the residents of Maple Pool still in question? If elected I want to move forward with what this council should have done three years ago. I want to work with the Lins to ensure that the residents of Maple Pool can stay in their homes.

If elected I want to act as a conduit for the residents of Courtenay to influence how their city is governed, and the policies put forth by council.

I don’t wish to lead the residents of Courtenay; if elected I want the residents of Courtenay to tell me which direction they want our community to go, and as a member of council I will do all I can to create the policies to get us there.

There will be bumps along the way and disagreements, but if we come together with open minds and honest compromise, our community can become something truly remarkable.

Feel free to email me at
