IAN JESSOP
Former Broadcaster (CFAX, CKNW)

As a broadcaster, my goal is to uncover the truth, bring information to light, and be a voice for those people or ideas that aren’t always at the forefront. This isn’t always easy, but I feel that we have to question what we’re told and search for a better way forward.

It’s time for fair representation and honest communication in Saanich. With your support, I’ll ensure that you have a voice at the council table.
