Three women have been assaulted in two racially motivated attacks in our city in the span of a week. It’s reprehensible and utterly unacceptable.
This is not the Edmonton I know and love. I believe in a city that welcomes newcomers. That celebrates the beauty of our diverse cultural backgrounds. That treats everyone with the respect and dignity due every person.
In divisive times, it’s more important than ever that we come together to create a safe and welcoming city. Use your voice to speak out against racism, hatred, and gender-based violence. If you need help on or near transit, call or text Transit Watch 24/7 at 780-442-4900. Be the kind of neighbour you would want to have.
