Connect. Engage. Transform.

I’m running to be your next Ward 11 Councillor because I want to work with you.

I chose to live in Ward 11 because it is an ideal place to raise my young family. I love the variety of neighbourhoods, businesses, parks and services, and of course the thread of Mill Creek Ravine connecting it all together. But most of all, what makes Ward 11 special to me is the people who live here.

I believe in people-first decision-making and that this is a city where everyday Edmontonians have the opportunity to shape its present and future.

As your City Councillor, I will listen to and learn from the rich experiences and wisdom of Edmontonians. Through our collective effort, we will make Ward 11 a more connected community that better serves the needs of all residents.

I look forward to getting to know you!

Issues of homelessness, poverty, and housing are not unique to the inner city. Because of these concerns, I spoke out about the proposed Inner City Wellness Plan at City Council’s Executive Committee on Tuesday, July 4. Here are my speaking points.

    Reconciliation and the Role of the City

    On June 21, Summer Solstice, the first day of summer, and National Aboriginal Day, I took my daughter down to Victoria Park to participate in the celebration. I wanted her to experience her first Aboriginal Day, to listen to the drumming and bounce to the rhythm in the round dance. Among busloads of school children from all walks of life, we joined hands and set the record for the largest round dance in sync with other cities.

    Annual Nagar Kirtan parade symbolic of cultural diversity in Edmonton

    Bright orange and yellow headscarves floated in the crowd.

The Sikh community of Edmonton and their friends came together to celebrate the spring festival of Vaisakhi and the birth of the Khalsa, the Sikh community.
