Answers to your questions

Q: There is a list circulating around parent Facebook groups identifying school trustee candidates throughout BC that are anti SOGI 123. 

People are commenting that those on the lists are, therefore, bigots and should not be voted for.

Could you please clarify whether it is LGBTQ2 identities, SOGI, SOGI 123 or all three that you are against.


A: Unfortunately, people are not very knowledgeable about the issue of SOGI and the SOGI 123 resources. I don't disagree with the intent of the SOGI policy or informing students about the life choices of those who are LGBTQ. I do not advocate the promotion or teaching of any ideology in schools if other religious values are not being taught in the same way. There is not a balance here and many people who have faiths and cultural values do not agree with the SOGI 123 resources because of the way it is being taught as an ideology. There are specific views of creation and how we view ourselves as humans. However, these views are not inclusive of other viewpoints and faith groups. There is no simple answer to this question but I hope I have clarified my views. I will speak on behalf of those who vote for me and try to give a fair representation for all.

Events


Happenings you shouldn't miss in the weeks ahead.

Chopped Event Finale at South Surrey Recreation Centre Sept. 22nd. This ambitious young chefs were competing for this years Youth Showcase Food Event. Even the audience were asked to participate as a Wild Team, four lucky members of the audience were competing as well. 

Each recreation centre hosted an event to find their team finalists. During the Finale, the teams were asked to prepare three different courses within a time limit. The judges evaluated appetizers, main courses, and desserts from all six teams. It was a great event! 

Community events help build communication and relationships with the many diverse groups we have in Surrey. I enjoy meeting and talking with people about how they came to be apart of Surrey and what they want to see happen in the community. Education is a valuable part of our future and I hope to continue to find ways to improve our standard of education here in Surrey. I have seen how other countries have developed and aim to continue to work hard towards the future of education here in Canada. 

* In the Torch Light parade at the White Rock Sea Festival we brought together more than fifty different International flags to represent the many nations here in Surrey. 

* Back to school event through City Dream Centre gave away over 1000 backpacks for age 5-13 yr. olds, food hampers, haircuts and manicures, lunch and clothing. Such a wonderful atmosphere of excitement and fun.
