A Real Person, A Real Leader
Christine supports wholeheartedly the Alberta Government’s Setting the Direction framework, which houses Action on Inclusion – an emphasis on engagement to meet the differing needs of the school population.
Chickwagon! members work in partnership with the YWCA of Calgary to help stop family violence through fundraising, and support of events such as Walk a Mile in Her Shoes and Keep a Roof Over Their Heads. Since becoming an MLA Christine continues her dedication to women's issues by advocating for a change in Government focus from Emergency Shelter funding to creating a framework of funding that also includes second stage housing for women and children. It is Christine's belief that in attending to the psychological impact of trauma on children who witness abuse in the home will result in a decrease in domestic violence statistics.
