This Citizen Speak is brought to you by one of our community allies from the University of Alberta. Over the course of fall 2013, a University of Alberta Community Service-Learning student (Alexandra Brooker), set out to explore and document what people in Edmonton think being an engaged citizen means and how we can get better at it.
