Known as a consummate team player, Adam excels in organization, diplomacy, and interpersonal relations, which have been key to his success in various leadership roles.

Professional Background

Adam's career in youth sports and community engagement began with a significant tenure as the Executive Director of one of BC's largest minor hockey associations, where he served for four years.

Political Vision

Adam is driven by a desire to see the communities and residents of the Mid Island-Pacific Rim riding thrive. He believes that a common-sense approach is crucial to addressing the challenges facing British Columbians. Adam has identified three key areas where he believes the NDP has failed:

  1. Drug Crisis and Mental Health: Adam argues that the NDP's policies have exacerbated the drug crisis, leading to increased homelessness and unsafe communities. He advocates for real treatment and recovery initiatives to replace failed policies.

  2. Cost of Living: Adam criticizes the NDP for failing to improve affordability, highlighting recent tax and rate increases that burden residents. He calls for the elimination of the Carbon Tax and other measures to reduce the cost of living.

  3. Support for Professionals: Adam emphasizes the need to better support healthcare professionals, teachers, and law enforcement officers. He believes in attracting and retaining more doctors and nurses and providing adequate support to ensure these professionals can effectively do their jobs.

Conclusion
