Monique Van Ewyk is vying for a seat on Grand Forks city council

I grew up in Castlegar, B.C., and am no stranger to small town life. I am hard working, loyal, and dedicated to my beliefs and causes. Combined with my Business Administration Management Diploma and background in working for non profit organizations, small family businesses, and government health office, I believe I have much to offer this great town.

I would like to bring our diverse cultures, activities, and beautiful town to light with events to attract tourists with encouragement to settle down. I would love to bring a humane and just solution to our urban deer by working with our deer council, SPCA, and provincial government, by creating a wildlife park where the deer are safe and tourists can visit them.

Grand Forks was once the #1 supplier of vegetable seeds in Canada! With the demand of GMO free foods, we have the perfect area to grow GMO free seeds and export them.  Grand Forks is a border town, and perfect for importing and exporting products.

I envision a downtown full of life during the day and a nightclub to go dancing in the evening, and these new businesses are not being taxed out of business. I believe this town has a lot to offer, and now is the time to showcase who we are.

I am running because I am the working class, and I will not be pushed around and silenced. I will be your voice of equality and fairness for us, the citizens of Grand Forks. When Nov. 15 comes, vote for Van Ewyk, because I want to help bring Grand Forks the growth and prosperity we need!
