Let’s choose to move forward together

Tiffany Rose

Liberal Party

of Canada

Central Alberta has become ground zero in Canada’s struggle for progress as a leader in righteous compassion.

Out of fear and unchecked anger comes the rise of dangerous populism. The People’s Party of Canada and its cynical emergence has made it clear that we must stand firm in our resolve not to bow to regressive social politics, no matter what is promised along with them.

The parachuting of the PPC’s most controversial candidate into our community means they think our community is ripe for the seeds of intolerance and the rolling back of basic human rights.

We know Canada is stronger because of our freedom and diversity, and our progressive culture of inclusion and acceptance. Our reputation as a force for peace is one we must fight to maintain and continue.

My grandfather fought and gave much of himself on the battlefield to ensure we would never forget the lessons of history. I have not forgotten the danger of a life lived without compassion, righteous action and the ideals of Canadian inclusivity.

I have been described as an empathic teacher and skilled presenter who has worked with thousands of people to help them effectively manage stress, cultivate mindfulness, and navigate challenging life issues.

With sensitivity and vigour, I pioneered trauma-informed care in Canada’s yoga industry. It has been my privilege to share my work in print, online and as a facilitator across the country. I am a strong and spirited advocate for equality.

I am working earnestly to be a helper in support of Canada’s healing journey as treaty people.

I raised my daughter in Red Deer after moving from Ontario in 2006, working primarily in the non-profit sector with a focus in public relations, marketing, fundraising and stewardship.

As a passionate entrepreneur, I owned and operated businesses in Red Deer and Lacombe. An educated and advanced yoga instructor, I’ve used my platform in trauma-informed yoga to advocate for disability justice, specifically in the mental health community.

Central Alberta deserves a strong voice, someone who has seen and understands the regional needs of our families. Someone who knows we are a community that has strong ties to both rural and urban centres.

I cannot emphasize this strongly enough. We are at our best when we embrace one another with kindness and empathy. It is important you vote.

I implore you to send a clear message to the PPC that fear and intolerance will not win here and it never will. I hope you will stand with me and all our neighbours and friends to show up for our most marginalized neighbours.

On Oct. 21, please make your voice heard. Choose forward.
