What Twitter Can’t Do | Monica Bassili

Why does this matter? Well, in short, it doesn’t. The essence of online comments, especially on Twitter, is inherently performative. Little rationale, logic, or critical thought is placed on online statements. How much substance can one take from 280 characters?

Not every comment, post, or thread online should be placed at the level of “political scandal.” As Haji is yet to be voted in as an NDP candidate, any Twitter “scandals” should be regarded as an extension of political theatre. What is truly important is learning what Haji works for and supports once announced as the NDP candidate for Edmonton-Decore. 

Light in Darkness Exhibition: Photography by Tope Akindele

Photography Exhibition by Tope Akindele opens in June

“The exhibits will showcase some of the fine art photography created during the pandemic. Light In Darkness is a collection of work that invites us to examine life’s journey as extremes on a continuum of sameness”.

“It examines the contradictions and often tensions that arise from our experiences of love, laughter, trauma, inequity and the pandemic”.

“The artist encourages hopeful curiosity as we engage with the exhibition in finding our joy in sadness, pain in happiness while awakening our learners mind to evoke light in darkness”.

The location is Multicultural Heritage Centre, 5411 51 Street, Stony Plain, AB T7Z 1X7

Small business is a big deal in Alberta – from jobs to economic growth! When we support Alberta entrepreneurs, we build the backbone of our province and support a real ‘Alberta advantage’ that goes beyond the GDP to provide jobs, pride, and build communities. I have operated my own private practice for over 2 decades and know the difference that knowledgeable support makes for the small business owner. Support makes a difference and that ranges from providing information and skills support to self-sustaining grants. 

CITY SHARES PLAN FOR SAFE AND EQUITABLE EDMONTON

City shares plan for a safer and more equitable Edmonton

“Edmonton will become one of the first Canadian cities to take this kind of system-wide approach to community safety and well-being,” said City Manager Andre Corbould. “The Community Safety and Well-being Strategy was developed and led by the City, but it is truly driven by the community. We must remain aligned on this work to make Edmonton a healthy city, a neighbourly city, and one that embodies and promotes equity for everyone who calls it home.”

The Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Strategy, a comprehensive plan for building a safe and inclusive city, is guided by ConnectEdmonton and The City Plan. The City recognizes it must continue working in collaboration with partners in the community to eliminate racism, make clear progress towards Truth and Reconciliation, improve equity, and end poverty. When more people feel safe, empowered and supported as individuals, everyone in the city benefits.

Mayor Amarjeet Sohi

Mixed reactions to Mayor Sohi’s first State of the City Speech

He had strong words for the provincial government:

“We need our provincial government to step up because tackling houselessness, mental health, addictions and trauma is their responsibility. They need to show up for our most vulnerable. People’s human dignity and our economic recovery depends on it”. 

He highlighted the inequities Edmonton has suffered under the UCP government:

“From 2007 to 2021, Edmonton has received $1.1B less compared to Calgary under the MSI and Basic Municipal Transportation funding”. 

“Edmonton is a regional hub for social services. We carry a disproportionate burden providing servicing to Alberta’s most vulnerable for which we receive no recognition or financial support”. 

“Every year, Edmonton loses $14M in tax revenue because our provincial government is not paying its fair share of property taxes on the buildings they occupy.”

“In the past 3 years, our world-renowned University of Alberta has faced the largest budget cuts of any post-secondary in the province. Now totaling $222 million, stifling innovation and hurting students”.

Elusive to media chats, Leslyn Lewis is the only female and BIPOC candidate in the race. According to  her website: “she believes that Canada is only strong when all Canadians have a voice, and where we can all unite in forging a Canada where we all have an equal opportunity to optimize our potential.  This is a goal that sees all Canadians as equal under the law: where race, religion, creed, orientation, and political affiliation are no longer used to divide us”.
