I’ve known Colin since he was a young child. I am so proud to have watched him grow up to become one of Kelowna’s new, young leaders. His youthful enthusiasm combined with his knowledge of the area and experience in media and business make him an ideal choice for Kelowna City Council. He is not afraid to make tough decisions and push for the changes necessary to move Kelowna forward. Colin is in favour of sustainable development, responsible business growth and job creation, which will benefit all residents for generations. I will be voting for Colin and I hope you will too.

In the past five years, I have known Colin to be of high integrity with well grounded morals and beliefs. His well rooted family ties have given him a great foundation for commitment to his community. As well, his past and present professional experiences have given him not only many insights into what Kelowna needs to be safe and prosperous, but also the courage and strength to speak up and do something about it. I think these are the characteristics that are very much needed as our city moves forward in difficult times. For this reason I will confidently be voting Colin Basran to City Council on November 19th.

I’ve known Colin for 25 years. We’ve been to elementary, middle and high school together and we have seen Kelowna grow immensely over that time. Colin has the qualities that I want in a Kelowna City Councillor. Colin would be passionate, persistent and relentless in his quest to make Kelowna one of the best places to live, work and play in Canada. For example, Colin and I are both proud fathers who are concerned about gang and drug activity in Kelowna. We want our kids to grow up on safe streets. I know Colin will take any measures necessary to ensure the safety and well being of our residents. Come November 19th, vote for Colin, a man who will take action today!

We have known the Basran family for over 35 years and thus, have watched Colin grow into the fine young man he is today, with a good moral character and strong roots in the community. He has a proven work ethic and has been successful in both his media and real estate employment, both of which have given him a good knowledge of the area. We know Colin will work hard to find solutions for the challenges currently facing the city and will bring a cooperative and youthful approach to council. We will certainly be supporting Colin in his bid for election.

I have met Colin over a year ago and have gotten to know him very will since then. I fall into a category of a ‘young professional’ – a demographic that Kelowna desperately needs to attract and retain for sustained economic growth and prosperity. Instead, Kelowna is losing its young minds – along with their potential businesses, incomes, spending, job creation, families and property tax contributions to Calgary and Vancouver. Colin understands that this very fact is undermining Kelowna’s future and it’s my strong impression that he will do all that he can to start reversing this ugly trend. We – speaking for young professionals – need Colin in council so that we have a voice for our future! And to all the young eligible voters out there: get off your butts and vote in November! It’s the future of your city and you should have your say.
