Celebrating Our Diversity


I am working hard to maintain Francophone language and culture. As a father to two daughters, Katherine and Sarah, who attended French school growing up, and a long-time resident of Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam, home to Maillardville, I understand the importance of supporting our French communities. That’s why our government has provided: 

  • $3.5 million to École des Pionniers to build a state-of-the-art French school in our community
  • $62,000 to the Société Francophone de Maillardville for their Festival du Bois in 2017 and 2018 
  • $2,200 to Coquitlam Place Des Arts Society for their Brighten Up! Event

Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam has always attracted people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, and getting to know new neighbours in our community is one of the best parts of my job. I work hard to make our immigrants and refugees feel welcome and to assist their transition to our community by: 

  • Meeting with newcomers in our communities to discuss their experiences and concerns. 
  • Working with organizations, such as the Tri-Cities Friends of Refugees Task Group, to assist newcomers with their transition. 
  • Attending multi-cultural events such as Nowruz, Easter service, Iftar, and Chinese New Year at Henderson Place. 
  • My office has assisted thousands of Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam residents with immigration issues – everything from reuniting families to ensuring that special someone is able to attend a milestone family event. I am so proud of the work we do to help our community!

I was proud to support Masjid Alhidayah and Islamic Cultural Centre’s application to the Security Infrastructure Program. This fund provided them with $53,000 so they could install a modern security system and increase safety in our community. 

Did you know? Since I was elected I take French lessons every week! And, in the summer of 2018, I spent two-weeks in Quebec at French School.
