Saanich Elections

The Saanich municipal election is shaping up to be one of the tightest races in the region.

We’re focusing on Saanich because it is a regional powerhouse and has a huge influence over how the entire region manages its air, land and water.

Our mayors and councilors have a lot of power. For example, our local leaders can help stop the expansion of oil tankers on the south coast. They can also determine if our communities will preserve farmland and prioritize local food production.

We know municipal elections can be confusing, so we did a survey of all the election candidates in Saanich to find out which ones most closely align with our campaigns against oil tankers and urban sprawl.

These are the candidates who scored the most points in our survey:

Mayor
David Cubberley

Councilors/Directors
Judy Brownoff
Dean Murdock
Vic Derman
Harald Wolf
Paul Gerrard
Vicki Sanders
