Answer

I believe our best future lies in a foundational commitment to Truth and Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. 

If re-elected, I am committed to advocating for the following: 

  • Completing the build-out and funding of the Indigenous Relations Office at the City of Calgary.  
  • Achieving a deep structural commitment by the City of Calgary to Truth & Reconciliation and the White Goose Flying Report
  • Building a more robust and formalized relationship with Treaty 7 First Nations.
  • Supporting Indigenous communities to identify and plan for an appropriate and significant Indigenous Gathering Place and ensuring it is funded. 
  • Supporting efforts for the formal recognition of St. Dunstan School as a former residential school site and ensuring appropriate memorialization is funded.
