Wade Grant for Vancouver City Councillor


for Vancouver City Councillor

I am excited ā€” with the support of my children and family ā€” to confirm that I am seeking the NPA nomination for Vancouver City Council. As a proud Musqueam member and Vancouverite, Iā€™m looking forward to working on real reconciliation, through real action in our city. Vancouver has helped me become the man and father I am today; I am proud of my upbringing and foundation. In addition to my Musqueam background, I am a proud descendant of new Canadians who immigrated from both Europe and China many years ago.

I am excited to join the #LetsFixHousing movement. This movement is about seeking change for the political culture in our city, focusing on action and bringing people together, instead of division and political games.

As a member of Vancouver City Council, I will work towards:

  • Creating land and housing solutions throughout the city, including for Indigenous communities
  • Bringing Indigenous voices to key decision-making rooms throughout the city
  • Making real change for marginalized communities throughout Vancouver
  • Working on a future for Chinatown that embraces both heritage and progress
  • Continuing to be a bridge for Indigenous and new immigrant communities

In all of these areas, I will be working with a passionate team to take good ideas, get the job done, and bring people together.

Our city needs to move forward and end the political pettiness. I am joining this movement to bring action and solutions to those in need across our city. I look forward to the opportunity to continue building bridges between neighbours, and working on the solutions that benefit us all.
