Core Values

Two words drove Scott’s re-election campaign: Core Values.

More than a motto, the words speak to a central philosophy of Scott’s service to Ward 6 communities.

A Prosperous City

° The City’s upcoming review of civic services must reduce the overall tax burden.

° To attract business and talent, the City must make smart investments in critical infrastructure and services.

° The City’s permitting process must be streamlined.

° Ward 6 must be Edmonton’s living room, hosting major events to attract dollars and talent.

° The new Screen Industries Commission must halt the talent exodus by growing local production companies.

° The City must invest in a Live Music Strategy and policies.


Uplifting All People:

° City council must ensure housing innovation meets the needs of emerging generations.

° User fees for City services must accommodate students, seniors and the vulnerable.

° Edmonton must continue to lead the nation on ending poverty and housing the homeless.

° Edmonton must become Canada’s great indigenous city, through reconciliation, promise-keeping and partnerships.

° The mental illness epidemic in modern cities must be a priority in the mayor’s Health City initiative.

° Edmonton must commit to ending racism, gender discrimination and faith-based hate.


Healthy Neighbourhoods:

° Transportation strategies must balance the needs of commuters, students, communities and business.

° The City’s alley paving program must be fiscally responsible.

° The City must foster connected neighbourhoods through better urban design.

° Heritage homes must be catalogued and preserved, with citizen support.

° Edmonton’s poverty strategy must include City policy that directs social and affordable housing to other Wards.

° Protecting heritage trees and creating new green space must be embedded in infill policies.

    Good afternoon Mr. McKeen, I was taking the bus to work this morning and passed a sign indicating Frank Oliver Tunnel leading to Telus Plaza in front of the Hotel McDonald and wondered what a reconciliatory feet it would be if every ‘Frank Oliver’ named landmark, building, park and/or etc. were changed to ‘Papaschase’, now that would get the whole city talking!?! For those that both know about this history and for those that do not. Or 2nd in my mind, how about changing to ‘Angel’ as in ‘Okisikow (Angel) Way’.

    Could this courageous and modern city be this bold? Would the powers at be step into this place and create such irony? generations and generations later…..7 generations on from Frank Oliver’s legacy to put us all on a different trajectory?
