Mimi's priorities include:

  • keeping public services public, affordable and accessible

 

  • putting a greater focus on pedestrian and cyclist safety in transportation and transit planning

 

  • using bylaw and zoning mechanisms to deal with derelict properties

 

  • using tools like inclusionary zoning to increase the stock of affordable housing throughout the city

 

  • encouraging responsible infill development that promotes multi-generational communities and the ability for seniors to stay in their communities if and when they decide to sell their single family home

 

  • recognizing that our economy is changing and the way that we look at licensing for small businesses and residential zoning is going to need to change along with it

 

  • inclusive hiring practices at City Hall and a concerted effort to promote diversity among the appointments to the city's agencies, boards and commissions

 

  • truly valuing citizen engagement and looking for new ways to get Edmontonians involved in making decisions about their future

 

  • working with the other municipalities in the region to ensure that citizens get the best services at the best value for money possible

 

  • trying to preserve whatever farmland we have left and affording Edmonton's historical resources the respect they deserve

 

  • protect the environmental integrity of the river valley and public access to it

 

  • pursue development of the Rossdale water treatment plant in a way that honours our city's First Nations Indigenous & Metis history and serves as a lasting monument that we all live on Treaty 6 territory

    Please begin to speak publicly about the need to move Lucy the elephant to a sanctuary. As a compassionate society, we can no longer keeping her or other animals captive for human entertainment. Please let’s work to ban exotic animal entertainment in Edmonton.
