Aboriginal community leader Ken Clement says he wants to run for school board with centre-left Vision Vancouver. He believes he would be the first person of First Nations descent ever to be elected in the city’s civic scene.
“We felt it was time to have our voices heard,” said Clement, a member of the Ktunaxa First Nation near Cranbrook and executive director of Healing our Spirit B.C. Aboriginal HIV/AIDS Society. “There has never been an Aboriginal voice in city politics.”
