Questionnaire Response

Why did you decide to run in the 2014 Winnipeg Civic Election?

I believe that Point Douglas’s defining issue – the issue that will determine how well the ward does in the future – is ensuring that all residents of Point Douglas have access to the labour market and the services that much of Winnipeg takes for granted. I will work to create more jobs and opportunities in Point Douglas, fix our roads, and make our communities safer.

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as Councillor?

I have led provincial and division-wide policy changes that lead the way for expanded Aboriginal education. I led key developments for the ACE Aboriginal Circle of Educators from 2005- 2009. I founded CAEM -Council for Aboriginal Education in Manitoba, which affiliated with the Manitoba Teachers Society as a Special Area Group of Educators-SAGE. I also founded of the Manitoba Aboriginal Education Awards banquet and was instrumental in getting two annual Aboriginal education conferences off the ground in Manitoba.

Through my work I have been listening to a wide range of viewpoints, and it is clear that city council must focus on the priorities of the individuals and families in the ward. That is why I will focus on making our communities safer, fixing our roads, and creating more jobs and opportunities. I will stand up for these priorities and for the people of Point Douglas at city hall.

I am a seasoned bridge builder who also knows how to get things done. I will work to illuminate people’s strengths raising people up to assume roles and responsibilities as leaders. I use my past experience to get results for the people of Point Douglas.

What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as Councillor, and why are these issues important to you?

I have been raising awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous women for over 20 years through the education of others, which started with co-writing and performing in the play “Those Damn Squaws” with Winnipeg's Red Roots Theatre. My interest in bringing this subject to light came from having one of my own friends go missing 20 years ago. More recently I helped initiate Drag the Red, which has gathered volunteers to actively search for missing peoples in Winnipeg's Red River.

As well, I am focused on key priorities for the ward: Safer communities, more jobs and opportunities, and fixing our roads.

What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the ward you wish to represent?

Point Douglas is a very diverse ward, both culturally and economically. This diversity is a key strength of the ward, and I would be honoured to represent that diversity and ensure all voices are represented at city hall.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

I see this election as a tremendous opportunity to bring new people into the democratic process. I have been inspired by the enthusiasm and hope of the people of Point Douglas, and I would be honoured to represent this ward on city council.
