Daphane Nelson

Candidate for City Councillor

Again and unfortunately, I'm not familiar with this specific campaign, however, as I mentioned earlier, I see affordability as being an issue in our area and do support the concept of a living wage. I consult with worker co-operatives who see an equitable business structure as being a solution to issues around affordability.

I not only support it, I’ve been working with Living Wage for Families BC. I’m also working at the federal level to see a universal basic income become a reality.

Absolutely, as part of my vision (https://dlk.ca/affordability/) I want to raise the local minimum wage to $18/hour - gradually, of course.
