Michael Walters - Edmonton
Certificate diploma, Recreational Administration (Red Deer College)
Michael Walters has a resumé with seemingly unrelated titles – poet, activist, anti-poverty crusader, editor. But as is his way, he has organized them to create a greater good. This fall, Walters will run for Edmonton city council, with the formation of the Greater Edmonton Alliance, the Inner City Poetry Foundation and countless other volunteer positions as his work experience. Walters is no stranger to politics: In 2012, he ran to be as an MLA candidate for the Alberta Party during the provincial election but wasn’t elected.
