Located on Treaty Six land, Edmonton has the second largest urban Indigenous population in Canada. Our communities have been shaped by our combined history and the unique experiences of our neighbours from around the world . I believe we should celebrate our broad ethnic and cultural diversity. Our multicultural history comes with a legacy of discrimination and the City needs to take a leadership role against racism.
I am aware of the challenges faced by women and the LGBTQ community. Edmonton is ranked one of the worst cities in Canada for women’s equality, and while there have been some recent improvements, significant work remains to be done. As your City Councillor, I am committed to fighting discrimination.
