Ward 24, Barrhaven East

Hi, I'm Wilson!

Local council candidate Wilson Lo and his wife, Amelia, take a selfie on a bridge over a river at dusk.

I’m running to be your city councillor in Ward 24, Barrhaven East.

I live near Woodroffe/Rideaucrest with my wife, Amelia. I advocated for and served the city as an employee for nine years—two years as a customer communications officer at OC Transpo (I’m ^WL from their Twitter) and seven years as a bus operator before that. I decided it’s time to devote my energy and dedication to a role where I can more effectively serve you.

Barrhaven has an exciting decade ahead. We’re welcoming an estimated 13,000 new neighbours and have the chance to design and build a town centre from the ground up. That growth is located mostly outside Ward 24’s boundaries, but its pressures will affect our ward’s infrastructure and services. My platform ensures our infrastructure and services keeps up with growth and that we are more responsible with our money.

Your community is also my community. My wife and I live here and want to raise a family here, so I share with you a personal interest in shaping our future together.

I am the compassionate and caring neighbour you can count on to lead our community through its successes and challenges, the accessible and respectful councillor who will listen to you, and a collaborative and productive partner in improving our community. On October 24 I hope to have the privilege of your trust, support, and vote!

Platform

My platform focuses on ensuring our infrastructure and services don’t fall behind as the city continues growing and that we’re more responsible with our spending and revenue sources. From hyperlocal issues near your home, to wider Barrhaven concerns and some broader city items, it’s based upon my experiences as a resident of the ward and an OC Transpo employee, supplemented by feedback from neighbours at the doors.
