"I have enjoyed working with Fred for several years in my previous role as President of our local Métis community, and the work I continue to do for Métis people in Saanich. I appreciate his focus on tackling big issues such as childcare, housing and green space, while still listening closely to the concerns of the Saanich community. Fred uses innovative thinking to strike a balance between economic growth, public safety, community well-being, and environmental stewardship. I wish Fred well in his re-election campaign to continue the good work he has done in his current term as Mayor of Saanich."

"I want to share the incredibly positive actions we received from Mayor Fred Haynes to facilitate the opening of Pulse C3 (complete cardiac care). Pulse C3 is part of the “rebalancemd" group that has delivered orthopaedic care since 2013.The mayor understood the significance of this venture and how patients need to have continuity and access to specialist care.
Mayor Haynes showed extreme interest to understand the existing healthcare crisis. We had meaningful discussions about remedies that could be immediate and he took this away to work with the other mayors in the Capital Regional District and the Province. It was obvious how much he cared about the social issues in Saanich. During these challenging times we require strong local leadership and a balanced approach to our ever-changing municipality. Fred has this and we are in very good hands. I support his re-election."
Stefan Fletcher CEO Rebalancemd
Fred proudly displays his “Green Shores Award”, designation as the badge of protection for the fresh waterfront environment at his home. As a councillor and then mayor, he accompanied me on multiple watershed walks, always listening, and understanding issues by being present on the ground. I fully support his re-election.

"Fred Haynes supports families, and understands the importance of quality childcare in keeping our community healthy. When we learned that our childcare centre was losing it's location, Fred personally visited our centre to listen to our concerns. Following his visit, he offered continued support and advice in finding a new location. His support was instrumental in our centre being able to stay open to continue serving the families of Gordon Head/Saanich with quality early education and childcare. We are very grateful to Fred, and support his re-election as Mayor."
