Chinese translator and interpreter

Political affiliations (past and present): N/A

What neighbourhood do you live in?

Richmond Centre 

What inspired you to run?

I have been feeling very frustrated with the lack of representation on council for queer, racialized, working class people, and I think I was just worried that a progressive voice would be replaced by another cop or capitalist.

What are your top priorities?

I am a sucker for affordable housing, re-allocation of police spending into mental health and substance use programs, destigmatization of sex work, language access to public services, and people just having their basic needs met at minimum.

All byelection candidate profiles will be published online over the next few days.
