We were honoured last week when City Council was shown the trailer for our new video “Building Bridges”, about interfaith activities in Edmonton. We were hosted before the meeting, please see the photo. From the left: Mayor Don Iveson, Shiraz Kanji, Len Gierach, Farah Jamil (board members), Netta Phillet (office coordinator), Eric Spoeth (producer) and City Chaplain Rev. John Dowds. We were especially proud to share the honours with Anthony Johnson and James Makokis, the first two-spirited and first Indigenous winners of Amazing Race Canada, who were there with three generations of their families! There are two upcoming opportunities to see the video, first on December 9 in City Hall at noon. Then on Friday Dec. 13 at noon in City Hall there will be a launch of the Eckankar display in the Celebrating Our Faiths program, followed by a viewing. More details to follow.
