March 28, 2021 – News
RECONCILIATION BRIDGE, CALGARY, ALBERTA, February 14 – Today, on the eastern edge of Ward 7 on the banks of the Bow River in Treaty 7 Territory, Marilyn North Peigan took an historic step towards improving representation on Calgary’s City Council.
Marilyn North Peigan, a proud Blackfoot woman and member of the Piikani Nation, announced her candidacy for City Councillor for Ward 7, in a municipal election campaign that has already drawn a number of qualified new faces vying for a seat on council.
Ms. North Peigan purposely chose February 14 as a launch date to reclaim power and place, a tribute to the National Inquiry.
The location selected for Ms. North Peigan’s campaign launch reflects her history in the community. In the distance lay the confluence of the Bow River and the Elbow River, or Moh-kíns-tsis. Near the foreground was Reconciliation Bridge, named in 2017 following the recommendations in the White Goose Flying report, the City of Calgary’s response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report.
Ms. North Peigan is proud of the work she contributed in support of the White Goose Flying report. She looks forward to bringing her demonstrated work ethic and unique perspective to the Council table to represent the residents of Ward 7, and contributing to a sustainable approach to local government, focused on what will benefit all Calgarians now, and for the next seven generations.
Calgarians go to the polls on Monday, October 18, 2021 to elect their City Councillors and Mayor for the next four years. All Canadian Citizens over 18 years old who are residents of Ward 7 on Election Day are able to cast a vote for their choice of Ward 7 Councillor.
Friends and neighbours in Ward 7, let’s make it happen… together.
