Election 2014: District of Barriere council candidate Christine Janis

Christine Janis put her name forward because she wants I want to help assure children good future in Barriere

Christine Janis

Christine Janis moved from Langley to Barriere with her family in 2006.   She says she made the  move “…to slow down and raise my children in a better environment”.

She is dedicated to her children, and says “my right hand man is Shawn Welz”.

“I am a full time mom,” says Janis, “I put my name forward as councillor because I have five of my own children and I want to assure them a good future in this community.  I have been a mom for 30 years, four girls and one boy, ages from 12 to 30.  I have spent a lot of time refereeing.”

Although a full time mom, Janis has found time to get her degree in business administration, co-own a trucking company, and currently is the sole proprieter

Janis says, “I would like to see the community excel as somewhere kids can learn good life lessons and eventually access good employment.  I want to see more opportunity, see economic development increase and see industry taking up residence and providing good paying jobs.  I am pro-active for a sustainable environment, and I strongly believe in transparent accountability by our elected officials.”

The candidate says one of her goals as a councillor is, “To use the land that is available in Barriere for innovative industry, and to actively pursue this goal as quickly as possible to help us create  a sustainable future for our community.

“When I drive into the community I would like to see something that shows we are moving into the future, not living in the past, something we should act on today, not tomorrow.”

Janis says her vision for the community is to see it sustainable both economically and socially.  “I would like to encourage more families to move here so that the town continues to grow and move forward.  Right now we are either flipping burgers, or moving out of province to find better employment.”

Janis encourages voters to make sure they come out and cast their ballots for the future of Barriere.  I am a good listener, and your voice will be heard,” says Janis.

To contact Christine Janis call 250-672-0269 or cell 778-257-4050.
