Ian Campbell, the Squamish hereditary chief, has recently announced intentions to run for mayor for the city of Vancouver.
Campbell’s campaign manager, Ginger Gosnell-Myers says the potential to have the Chief from the Squamish nation run for mayor is tremendously exciting.
Mr. Campbell is aware of the needs of Vancouverites in regards to affordable housing, in regards to the strain the downtown east side community is facing. He’s getting some sense of what people would like to see and what he can do to help alleviate a lot of the stresses that people are feeling right now.
If elected Campbell would become Vancouver’s first Indigenous mayor.
