Bonjour! čɛčɛhaθɛč

¡Hola! Hyvää päivää. 你好 Hi!


If you don't know me, you've come to the right place.

This is where you can find out what I think, what I care about,

and what I'm passionate about.

My name is CaroleAnn

I am privileged and grateful to live, work & play within the traditional territory of the ɬəʔamen (Tla'amin) Nation peoples who have sustainably lived on these lands for many thousands of years as the original inhabitants.


Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered, donated, canvassed and supported my campaign for Mayor.

I am humbled by all the amazing support and love in this community! I'm looking forward to continuing to do good work for this town into the future. Stay tuned! xo
