Shining Mountains have been repeatedly asked for advice on who to vote for. We can not in good conscience provide those answers, as voting is an individual decision, however we can assist with providing some comparisons.
Okay everyone, this is a VERY simplified overview of all the party’s stances on some of the key platform issues. If you want a more in-depth analysis, I strongly recommend you go review each party’s platform and make the most informed decision you can. That said, not everyone has the time or ability to go through all the party’s platforms I will summarize each party’s platform and try to minimize my personal opinion on them, but bear in mind, I like everyone have my own political biases. So that in mind, here is a simplified overview.
Stance on indigenous peoples:
As an Indigenous group, this is the first area we will look at. I will note that the ONLY party without a specific platform is the conservative party.
Fair warning, taxes are complex, they impact the economy in many ways, neither lowering nor raising taxes is a solution in and of itself, this is going to be one of the most divisive areas of the party’s and of your own political opinions.
Okay, so this is another complex issue and a summary doesn’t do the complexities justice, the big topic of the economy this time however is adorability. And each of the parties has a different way of trying to manage the rising costs of living and the decrease in our spending power

Title: DRUM 2 Métis Community Coordinator
Status: Part-Time 20 hours/week
Deadline: Please submit cover letter and resume or CV by: August 18, 2018
DRUM 2 will provide an opportunity for First Nation and Métis communities in Alberta to collaborate with and support each other as they work to provide improved HIV, Hep C and other STBBI prevention and care services within a shared care model approach. Under the guidance of an Elders Council and with the support of Community Research Assistants from the DRUM 1 project, we will study how programs are developed, adapted, implemented, and whether they meet their implementation goals (e.g., do they reach who they are supposed to? Are they delivered in the way that was planned? Do they continue?). DRUM 2 also provides the opportunity to learn by comparing different community approaches for shared care, including communities who follow the DRUM process, and also other communities who have developed their own shared care models. Working together, we will develop online “toolkits” for Indigenous communities to enable them to develop or enhance and assess their provision of STBBI services using a shared care model. We have received approval for five years of funding from CIHR through an HIV Implementation Science Component 2 (Implementation) grant to do this work. The grant will run from January 2018 to December 2022.
DRUM is a partnership between the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN), First Nations Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB), the Mental Health Commission of Canada, participating communities that include Sucker Creek First Nation, Driftpile Cree Nation, Tallcree First Nation, Stoney Nation, Blood Tribe and the Métis Nation of Alberta through Shining Mountains Living Community Services, people with lived experience, Elders, clinicians, researchers and service providers. The research is administered by the University of Victoria.
Responsibilities: The DRUM 2 Métis Coordinator will report directly to the Executive Director, Raye St. Denys. The overall project guidance will come from the DRUM 2 Coordinator, Carrielynn Lund.
The DRUM 2 Métis Community Coordinator will be responsible for:
