My name is Stephen Foster, and this October I'll be asking for your vote as a candidate for City Councilor in the Halifax West Armdale District. I'm running because I believe I have the passion, dedication, and skills needed to bring about real change in Halifax  - and because I want to give something back to a community that's given so much to me over the years.

If you want to know more, you can read about my story, check out my platform, and get the latest from the campaign trail on my blog. If you like what you see and hear, consider supporting the campaign.

Most of all, though, I'm interested in hearing from you. I want to know what your concerns are, what your priorities are, and what I can do to help. So please, contact me!

A smarter, greener Halifax
Who Am I?


First and foremost, I'm a proud native of District 9, and of Halifax. I was lucky enough to have grown up here, and I'll always consider it to be my home.


I've worn many different hats in my life: I'm a PhD physicist, an advocate for and researcher of renewable energy, an experienced programmer, a marathon runner, a problem solver, and a devoted uncle.

And I'm also someone you can trust: to work hard, to have your best interests at heart, to learn from mistakes, and to do what's right.

My priorities

Moving forward after COVID-19

We have a long road ahead of us, but I believe that city council can help with our recovery

Transit and traffic

We need new solutions to help ease traffic, improve transit, and make our roads safer

A truly green Halifax

My own scientific research focused on renewable energy, and I'll bring that expertise to council

Justice and police reform

The current system simply isn't just, and we need a change in police culture to fix it
