Join us on April 1 from noon to 1 pm for a discussion on concerns related to transportation on Edmonton's city council, and what the mayor and councillors to be elected this fall can and should do about it.
Host Chris Chang-Yen Phillips will tee up the conversation with special guest Emily Grisé, from the University of Alberta's School of Urban and Regional Planning. Then we’ll invite you to join in a deeper discussion of the issues.
This is the fourth in a series of conversations prompted by the People’s Agenda, a document we are compiling based on the responses to this question: What key issue do you want the candidates to talk about as they compete for votes in the 2021 municipal election, and why?
A number of responses sent in by readers so far have coalesced around concerns about how easily we’ll be able to move around the city. You’ve told us you want to know where candidates stand on a lot of transportation issues. Some people are interested in making transit more accessible and active transportation more attractive, some people are concerned about automobile traffic flow, and a few are skeptical about bike lanes.
The people want to feel heard.
Closed captioning will be available. Taproot will cover the events, but we will not quote you by name without your permission.
Candidates are welcome, but please take the opportunity to listen rather than to campaign.
The series continues throughout April:
• April 8: Will we spend less on police?
• April 15: Will we house everyone?
• April 22: Will we act on climate change?
• April 29: Will we build our city intelligently?
