  • Candidate Scott McKeen

    This thread is to ask questions of Candidate Scott McKeen – Councillor Ward 7.

    All members are asked to allow the Candidate to post first in his or her thread. This is to allow the Candidate ample opportunity to introduce their background, platform, and any other information they may feel is pertinent to this discussion.

    All decorum expected of members in the C2E Ask Forums will be expected here. An addendum is that posters may ask as many questions as they wish, but they are also politely asked to follow any instructions on posting or reply timelines that the Candidate expresses.

    Thank you to all for participating in the 2010 Connect2Edmonton Election Forum!

    Hello Scott,

    I would like to know how you'd adress concerns among ward 7 voters that you are merely parachuting into our ward in an attempt to obtain a seat on council, without having a vested interest in the community ? It seemed clear from the candidates meeting that many are concerned that you don't have a real pulse on the ward and some feel that your attempt to obtain a seat on council is merely an attempt to further your (albeit still commendable) promotion of the downtown area ? What do you bring to ward 7 specifcally ?

    Also, how do you think your promotion of a downtown arena complex coincides with many ward 7 residents' beliefs that the arena should stay at Northlands ?
    Over promise and under deliver. It’s the most Edmonton thing you can do.

      Moved discussions about campaign signs to this thread:

      I don't believe this is the right venue to discuss campaign signs.

        Scott, I have read in the past articles from you criticising the Municipal Sprawl Plan. What would you propose to stop us citizens having to subsidize sprawl? Would you support a green/brown belt around the city, or simply a freeze on approving new neighborhoods beyond the AHD? Do you agree Edmonton can lead on this issue by example, or do we have to wait for a regional governance that never seems to arrive or have teeth (due to lack of provincial support)?

          The Alberta Aviation Museum Association, in 2006 a small community museum now the 3rd largest aviation collection in Canada, is a feature tourism attraction in North Edmonton currently serves (5) veterans organizations, (3) Heritage organizations, (2) Youth organizations as well as a series of (6) modern aviation volunteer organizations such as the Civil Air Search And Rescue Association. The Museum also has the most advanced K-12 aviation education programming and is currently an operationally self sufficient not for profit operation that receives no operational funding from any level of government.

          This is a facility that currently receives over 150,000 individual uses per year and attracts visitors from around the world.

          What do you, as a candidate commit to specifically doing to insure the ongoing success and expansion of the Alberta Aviation Museum with the closure of the City Centre Airport and the damage it will cause to the facility?

          I have been directed to ask on behalf of the boards of this facility.

          Executive Director
