CHAI, the Calgary Housing Action Initiative held a march and rally during Homeless Awareness Week in calgary. This was at noon, on Thursday, September 20, 2007.

 

We were raising attention on issues of housing and homelessness in Calgary, particularly for the current municipal election.

 

We had about 25-30 people on the march, and about 50 people at the rally (plus a group of street evangelists who tried, and failed, to co-opt the rally for pushing their jesus message). A whole pile of media, too. Print, radio and TV.

 

Some local politicians attended, too. In this picture, you can see Harry Chase, provincial MLA for Calgary Varsity, and Lindsay Luhnau who is running for city council (“Alderman”) in Ward 8.

A number of local politicians came out to support the Peace Day celebration held in Calgary on September 21, 2007.

 

L-R: Sharon, Joe Ceci (Alder. Ward 9), Harry Chase (MLA, Calgary Varsity) and Druh Farrell (Alder. Ward 7).

I’ve been conducting video interviews with some of the candidates in the election. Today was James’ turn. (I hope to have the video edited and up on YouTube in a couple days.)

 

I’ve posted a website with contact information and all sorts of web links for all of the candidates in the election (Mayor, city council and the two school boards).

 

The website also has a list of upcoming candidate forums, links to information on how and where to vote (and how to figure out which ward you are in).

It was a beautiful autumn day when I interviewed him this afternoon. The colours along the bow river are great right now.

 

James is big on environmental concerns and has been an avid organic gardener in the city for many years.
