Wesley Greve

Council Candidate

Wes was born in Dawson Creek, BC and moved to Osoyoos in 2014.  He is the owner and founder of North Basin Brewing Company, a member of the Osoyoos Chamber of Commerce and an avid golfer.  Growing up in a small town in rural BC, he saw how income inequality impacts communities. Experience has taught him that housing and community support are a package deal that can drive positive community outcomes. He believes that safe streets, parks, and housing with support for the varied needs of residents, are the pathway to a more economically sustainable, fair, and prosperous community for all citizens.

His political vision

Residing and running a business in the heart of Osoyoos, Wes has an acute understanding of the issues facing the town. If elected, he will advocate for inclusionary housing, improved transportation, and support for a vibrant local business culture. He would like the town to remove barriers to the construction of affordable housing by developing town-owned property. Wes would also like to see a greater emphasis placed on communication. He thinks councillors should use video and social media, and to start thinking outside the box in how they connect with residents to engage on important community issues.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply affected our community and the businesses supporting it, and Wes is running for Council to build a stronger town. You can count on Wes to fight for an affordable, inclusive, and thriving Osoyoos by:

 

  1. Tackling the rising cost of living by pursuing town projects which address rental supply through increasing affordable and mixed-use housing.

  2. Increasing the focus on initiatives which will make Osoyoos a more vibrant and appealing community for business owners, families, seniors, and the arts community, such as:

    • Escalating the priority placed on social support for residents of Osoyoos including advocating for mental health resources, social housing, and social inclusion programs for families and senior citizens. 

    • Championing community building and sustainability through sponsorship of projects which improve the utility of parks, green spaces, and community recreation spaces.

  3. Making Osoyoos a year-round destination. This will  lead to the economic sustainability of the town by reducing the seasonality of the local economy. He will  advocate for events and initiatives to support the economy in all seasons..

  4. Accelerating town council’s response to the current clean water and sewage management crises.
