Edmonton Municipal Candidates 2021

We are heading into the 2021 Municipal Government. As an organization we complied a list of questions for you to get to know the candidates views and opinions on the campaigns GEA is currently working one.

Greater Edmonton Alliance is an alliance of faith, labour, health education and community organizations dedicated to building a base of everyday civic leaders to effectively stand for change they want to see in their communities. As an organization we need our municipal government to work with us so we can see the effective positive change in our community.
