Bio

Edith Loring-Kuhanga, 57, is from the Gitxsan Nation, Hazelton BC but has been privileged to have lived on the Coast Salish territory for the past 30 years. She has two sons ages 40 and 37 and raised four nieces and nephews. She has six years experience as a School Trustee (SD61: 2011-2014 and SD63: 2008-2011), 33 years experience in education and has been a small business owner for 22 years. She has a Masters in education leadership and a Bachelor of Education, graduating with distinction. Edith was the Recipient of the YM/YWCA Women of Distinction Award in the Education, Training & Development category.

Growing up in a large household, Edith learned the importance of sharing and caring for others. From the time that she was really young, she became a social justice activist and continues to ensure that everyone has a voice and that their rights are protected, regardless of who they are.

 

Why should I vote for you?

I have committed the majority of my life to ensuring that all students receive fully funded and quality public education and will continue to fight for this. I believe our board must be open, transparent and accountable for the annual $200 M budget that we receive from your tax dollars.

Your main goal if elected?

I will continue to advocate for fully funded public education as it is the basis of our democracy; for our most vulnerable students so that they receive all supports in order to be successful; that all seismic upgrades be fully funded and that our Board be open and transparent.
