Fraser Lake: LePoidevin, Craig – councillor candidate

I was born and raised in Fraser Lake and I am proud of how much growth our community has seen.  A year and a half ago I became the owner of Par 3 Sports and I am thoroughly committed to running the store and ensuring that it provides a viable service to the community of Fraser Lake and the surrounding area. Over the years we have seen businesses come and go in Fraser Lake and if we are to keep business in town, it is imperative that we provide what people need. Being a local business owner has allowed me to get a much better understanding of the demographics of Fraser Lake and has helped me discover Fraser Lake’s strengths and weaknesses.  I have a keen interest in the youth of Fraser Lake and enjoy my role as coach of the Bantam hockey team. Our youth enjoy soccer, hockey, junior curling, our fabulous new skate board park, and activities organized through the Village of Fraser Lake.  However I believe we need to offer more and hope to work closely with our youth to elicit new ideas. Our seniors also play a major role in the demographic of Fraser Lake and I would like to look into finding transportation opportunities for them.  Many of our seniors have no access to transportation, and I believe there are ways to address both the need for incidental transportation to help get a senior to an appointment or shopping and for group transportation that will take seniors on day trips.

My family and I are avid outdoor enthusiasts.  We enjoy time on the Village’s new walking/ski trails and the exercise equipment located on some of the trails.  We also love kayaking, boating and fishing on both Fraser Lake and Francois Lake. Over the past few years Fraser Lake has embraced becoming a healthier, more active community. I am passionate about physical activity and a healthy lifestyle and I would love to have the opportunity to help Fraser Lake become a healthy, active, productive and safe place for all citizens.
