Dr Jean Walrond is not an ordinary Edmontonian. She is an extraordinary woman in every sense of the word. She is the President and Chief Operating Officer of the Sickle Cell Foundation of Alberta. She is also a mum and a grand mum who is very passionate about the health and education of Black people.
The idea from this article came from something I saw on Sprawl Alberta. I have spent the evening, trying to update all the Mayoral Candidate Forums. I know there are several forums missing. So, please update me. My email is email@example.com
Each of these candidates have worked hard no doubt in letting the general public know their priorities. They have had their share of banter at these forums which have been useful in telling us about their policies.
With elections on Monday, October 18th, if you are still undecided, perhaps watching a few of these will help you make up your mind.
Amal Mohamud is a freelance journalist, writer, director and producer from Edmonton. Amal recently developed her first mainstream documentary project with Accessible Media Inc. The episode is about how Easter Seals Alberta is making the efforts to bring virtual events accessible and how it’s impacting lives.
If there is anything striking about this candidate, it is that she is empathetic, transparent and open to say she does not have answers to every question.
She took questions on child care, homelessness, public safety, the Edmonton Police, diversity, gender parity and more.
LCCMedia had University of Alberta’s Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law and Katz Research Fellow in Health Law and Science Policy Ubaka Ogbogu yesterday to discuss his choices for Edmonton Mayor and the twelve wards. Prof Ubaka does not mince words on Twitter where his stance on a variety of issues are clearly known. A day hardly goes by where he does not speak truth to power. For socially conscious Albertans, you want to follow him on Twitter where his transparent truth may educate and inform you.
