If you could be a superhero to protect New West, who would you be?
Stephen: “I would be Superman. He can’t be messed with and he’s invincible. I mean… He’s Superman.”
Marcello: “Batman. Anything to drive the batmobile around. I really like his mask and he has the best gadgets. And he’s rich.”
Imagine you walked into River Market one morning and you found out there was a zombie apocalypse in New Westminster. What would you do?
Stephen: “I would join in on the apocalypse and throw gelato at the zombies. Then I would drink a shot of espresso and make a run for it!”
Marcello: “I would instantly become a ninja and hide somewhere. Hopefully, no one will find me.”
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it?
Stephen: “I would travel, visit Europe. I would experience different things, like sailing. I’d buy a yacht and take everyone with me.”
Marcello: “I would be pretty set on getting a house and car, I was thinking a Ferrari or Mercedes Benz.”
If you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
Stephen: “I would want to meet Lebron James. I love watching him play basketball and I like the type of leadership he portrays with his team. When LeBron reunited with the Cavaliers, it was impressive how he helped take them to the NBA Playoff Finals. That is real team leadership.”
Marcello: “Definitely Cristiano Ronaldo. He is famous worldwide, he’s got the looks and the girls.”CONTACT
