District of Sicamous: McLeod, Malcolm -mayor candidate

Mayor candidate: Malcolm McLeod responds - What motivated you to run for municipal office?

My ultimate goal is to attract new, young families to Sicamous. The reality is there is a major shift and the population is aging. In less than 20 years, the 65-plus population will double in size. This creates problems, but also opportunities. To combat this issue and diversify our economy, I’m a strong proponent for working with Malakwa. There is untapped potential for industry to locate themselves here, midpoint between Vancouver and Calgary – the gateway to the Shuswap and Okanagan. We have a major highway and railway corridor, affordable land, taxes and fewer development restrictions.
