Former firefighter and union president Mike Hurley “respectfully” asked for support from Burnaby residents during an interview with the NOW broadcast live on Facebook Tuesday afternoon.
Hurley criticized incumbent Derek Corrigan’s record on housing and promised to put low-income renters first when considering his own policies.
On cannabis, however, he seemed to largely agree with Corrigan and the current council’s approach to legalization (coming Oct. 17). He said he thinks the roll out of retail stores should come gradually and that pot smoking should be allowed anywhere cigarette smoking is currently allowed.
Rat-running commuters on residential streets is a serious issue that has gone largely unaddressed, Hurley said. He promised to tackled the issue head on.
