I want to write more about Winnipeg and my time with our Indigenous Brothers and Sisters, but this blessed Municipal election keeps sucking up my time and energy. I’ve started to ration my checking Twitter to once a day so I can stay off blood pressure medication.

The good news is that Faith in the City and Commitment to Community working with Social Planning Toronto continue the campaign to get candidates for Councillor and Mayor to sign a pledge to commit to funding and implementing the City’s Poverty Reduction Strategy. You can read more about it here.

And if you have the time and inclination you can consider what it costs to better care for marginalised people in our city and what you are prepared to pay by doing this budget exercise.

Today I am not going to talk about the rise of populism and the movements that endorse leaders to wield their power. And more on Winnipeg to come.
