Council candidate: Malcolm Makayev

 

Economic diversity is necessary for Sicamous to strengthen our ability to compete with local markets and even global markets. We need to find new ways to attract new businesses, new investors and new markets.  We need a multi-year strategic action plan and I suggest that our community utilize an economics expert to guide us through business and community consultations, goal setting and strategic planning. Funding is generally available to assist communities in securing the expertise we need to do this properly. The global economic tides seem poised and ready for Sicamous to make its move in a big way.
