CBC Radio

I will be interviewed, live, on CBC Radio (740 AM) on Friday, September 14. This will happen some time around 12:40 PM. The interview will center around why more people don't consider running for trustee (and by contrast, what possessed me to take it on). In the last election, of the 400 available trustee seats in the province, 200 were taken by acclamation. No one ran against the incumbent. What are the obstacles preventing people from running? Why is our Board in Edmonton entirely white, with the majority from an education back ground? This lack of diversity needs to be challenged and we need to find ways to make this job more accessible and inviting to people of all walks of life.
