Robin’s message is one of hard work and dynamic action. "We need determination and passion to keep our small community vitality on the Federal radar." That Robin believes she can guarantee. Her ultimate allegiance is to a sustainable, vital Kootenay-Columbia. Robin's values are rooted in fairness, integrity, foresight, collaboration, rational thinking, inclusion and hard work. Her broad Kootenay experience, multitasking nature, strong people skills and positive, energetic approach, make Robin the best candidate for MP in Kootenay-Columbia.
For over 25 years in the Kootenay business trenches she’s faced issues with staffing, succession and profitability mired by climate change, government policy and burn-out. She’s adapted to transportation issues, access to healthcare, affordability and housing. She’s been that volunteer struggling with capacity restrictions - few of us doing much.
Robin successfully managed her many projects with an entrepreneurial approach that’s sensitive to people and the environment. Her key strengths are researching, tested leadership, and award-winning strategy planning, implementation and management.
She found her home in the Liberal Party of Canada where she’s actively formed policy with the national women’s commission and pushed for the new Ministry of Rural Economic Development. Robin is also working on extended healthcare policies.
“Rural is relevant! We are relevant! Together we have the creative, collaborative and workable solutions for sustainable rural vitality. What's needed is the enthusiasm and the smarts to grab the government's attention and get the work done.”
