John Tidbury

Having spent my entire adulthood in Port Hardy, I have strong ties to the community. I worked for Island Copper for 30 years. I currently own my own business. I raised a family of 4, and am active in the community. As a member of the Volunteer Fire Department I designed and built the fireworks display for Filomi days for the last 25 years, I am an active member of the Port Hardy Lions club. I bring a wealth of experience having been a town councillor for over 15 years and 2 years serving on the Mount Waddington Regional District. I am passionate about Port Hardy, its residents and its future.

We must place a high priority on bringing high speed internet to Port Hardy as soon as possible. Port Hardy must be open for business by offering incentives such as lower business property taxes so they may reinvest in Port Hardy.

I believe my experience in dealing with all levels of Government will work towards achieving this goal.

Helping Port Hardy become a healthy community with the resources that we need is a passion of mine. My wife suffers a chronic disease and it hurts that she needs to leave town and spend unnecessary dollars to access treatment.

Port Hardy, like every community in Canada is facing a garbage crisis. There is no easy solution when it comes to balancing excellent garbage service against the cost to provide such service. This is a problem that many communities are struggling with. I pledge to work with the council and the residents to find the best “Made in Port Hardy for Port Hardy” solution to this problem.
