Below are my takes, opinions and projects on local politics - predominantly East Sooke, Sooke and environs. Most significant note is that I ran for Sooke Council in 2022 and while not elected - only incumbent/prior councilors were - I still hold strong opinions and am continuing to work to make what positive change.

Featured Projects & Thoughts

Park Heights Neighbourhood Speed Limit Reduction

The Park Heights neighbourhood in East Sooke is a small rural/residental neighbourhood with a maximum driving distance to ESR of slightly over 2km. Nick is aiming to make it safer for residents, pedestrians and wildlife.

    Past Projects and Opinions

    Certainly things I still care about but slightly older thoughts and actions.

    2022 Sooke Council Election Results

    Nick ran in the 2022 Sooke Municipal election as candidate for council. The results are now in and safe to say Nick isn't a councillor this cycle. Not last but far from elected. All incumbents were re-elected and one former incumbent.

      Winter Weather Pedestrian Safety in Sooke

      This is unfortunately a story of failure, and a call to change. Our current method of ensuring safety and accessibility for pedestrians in Sooke in the winter is not working. There are short term improvements we can make but long term we need a fundamental shift.
