Yesterday, the Mayor announced the City’s “Ask About Edmonton” campaign. The new advocacy campaign focuses on encouraging Edmontonians to ask candidates tough questions on big issues such as housing and climate change during the upcoming election.
With the throne speech coming up on Monday, we all need to be clear about the things that matter most. Yesterday, at Homeward Trust’s ROOPH Awards I spoke about the need to speak up and ask about affordable housing in our city and province, and asked the Provincial government to really step up with funding. With thousands still left in poverty, and no announcement from any of the Parties about new housing funding as of yet - we need a campaign like Ask About Edmonton and we need to be clear about the city’s needs.
