CaroleAnn Leishman answered 2018-09-21 17:52:15 -0400Q: Why do you want to run for office? (150 words or less)
A: We need more progressive women in leadership positions. I stand for equality, working together, looking after people, human rights, women’s rights, Indigenous rights, LGBTQ rights and creating better communities for our youth, families, seniors and everyone. I enjoy giving back to the community. I am running for City Council for a second term this October 2018.
