I was recently appointed to the Calgary Police Commission. As a lifelong Calgarian, and a representative of Calgary's most diverse ward, I have a responsibility to share the perspectives of communities that have so often been neglected.
After holding dozens of townhalls, knocking on thousands of doors, and bringing the Public Safety Task Force forward, I’ve heard far too many heartbreaking stories of families devastated by violence.
Calgary should be a safe city for EVERYBODY, not just those in certain neighbourhoods. We can only accomplish this if we listen to those who, although not always the loudest, are bringing forward compassionate and equitable solutions.
