Local groups and individuals can give their opinion on how to make the province more diverse – stopping racism.
Since July, Minister of Education David Eggen has been traveling to different communities discussing different ways the province could help end the issue. He’s already made his way to Calgary, Edmonton, and Red Deer where he’s had talks with 60 different organizations.
He will continue his travels throughout the summer stopping in Medicine hat, Grand Prairie, Lethbridge, and Fort McMurray. Minister Eggen will be in town from September 11 – 13, while his ministry is still looking for groups and organizations interested in starting a discussion.
After his travels, he will send a report to Premier Rachel Notley where the government is expected to introduce a program to help fight racism.
Meanwhile, people can also take a survey online where they can share their opinion on promoting diversity and starting up different programs. The survey will be open to the public until September 22.
