Edmonton Black Lives Matter Charter

Hundreds of my constituents in Edmonton have contacted me in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and one thing is abundantly clear, you want change now. The time for reviews, apologies and statements is over. I’ve listened carefully to the change constituents are calling for and laid out below the demands that are emerging from this movement.

If you think anything is missing, please email my office at
