Stay up to date on the latest news and perspectives from Liz on pressing matters around the community of Edmonton and Ward Métis.
I love meeting new neighbours. There’s something so exciting about the prospect of what they’ll bring to the community. Maybe they’ll head a community Facebook swap group where people can trade old household items they aren’t using anymore. Maybe they’ll become a key member of the community league and bring energy in organizing fundraising for playgrounds. Or maybe they’ll just bring a bit of pizzazz to that house on the corner every Halloween, to the point where it becomes a must-stop for trick or treaters.
The community safety and well being task force released its report identifying 14 recommendations which the city councillors are asked to implement. One of these recommendations is for the police to have a transparent process when complaints are received from the public. Currently, copies of disciplinary decisions can only be obtained by contacting the EPSFOIPP coordinator. The task force asks for all decisions be published online as a standard practice.
