OCTOBER 20, 2018 - ELECT GORDON FULLER to Council
Born in 1958, 6' tall, long greying hair. KIDDING Folks. The aforementioned is true but perhaps something more descriptive is appropriate. A resident of Nanaimo since 1981, and a third generation Nanaimoite, I have been an outspoken community and social activist in Nanaimo for over two decades working with a number of different groups and organizations (SEE PAGE ‘ABOUT ME’) over the years. This experience, as well as that of life in general, gives me the knowledge and understanding of our community that I believe is necessary for any elected official. I believe strongly in a persons right to freedom of speech provided they do not intentionally set out to hurt in doing so. I intensely dislike closed mindedness and racism and belive that everyone, no matter their current situation, has the potential to benefit society.
SPEAK OUT & SPEAK LOUD, above all NO BULLSHIT!
The federal conservative party want to deny that there are issues with Food Security in Canada and yet we know for a fact that Food Banks are seeing ever increasing numbers. The Nanaimo 7-10 Club Society which provides a free breakfast and bag lunch to those in need saw its numbers increase by 18% last year and donations from individuals drop by 31%; tell me there is no problem.
It is a double edged sword for agencies like the Nanaimo 7-10 Club when it comes to cost of living impacts. Not only do their costs rise but the number of people needing the service does as well and many individuals who may have donated or want to donate now find themselves unable to do so.
