Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation Chair Stuart Mackinnon has joined Vision Vancouver! A former Green Party member, and three term park board commissioner, Mackinnon will sit as a Vision Vancouver park board commissioner until the end of his term.
“I love our city and care deeply about the people and neighbourhoods who are all working together to make life better. It’s time they had a council that was working with them,” said Mackinnon. “Vision Vancouver has a strong track record and experience moving quickly and responsibly on the issues that matter in our city. As a part of the Vision team, I know we can build a stronger, more compassionate city.”
In addition to his role as park board Chair, Mackinnon is a former educator at Killarney Secondary School, a current Vancouver Public Library Trustee and board member of many non-profit organizations including Axis Theatre, the Wilderness Committee and the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association. Mackinnon holds a BA in anthropology, a BEd in teaching English as a second language, and a MA Ed in leadership and administration.
