Here's some information about Andrew's background and principles

Since first being elected to City Council in 2016, Andrew has challenged the status quo at City Hall and on City Council. He's made bold statements about policing, living wages, the state of our infrastructure, the need to invest in people and our communities, and about our commitment to Truth and Reconciliation. But he has also worked extensively with his council colleagues on policy change and advocacy. When his son was diagnosed with cancer, he made family a priority but he made sure the needs of Ward 3 residents were being handled. He's always honest and transparent in the media, at Council, and in conversation with people. This is the level of commitment you can expect if Andrew is re-elected in 2020.
