We were recently affected – some more directly than others – by a tragic and random event in our neighbourhood. We sympathize with the community. We ask that everyone provide support and space to those who were involved or affected.
What happened does not reflect our community and neighbourhood. Duggan and Rideau Park have been known for active membership, inclusivity, diversity and resilience. What defines us and the broader community in Edmonton is bigger than these unforeseen circumstances.
Now that we’ve endured this difficult experience, let’s take the opportunity to strengthen our connections. We’ve already progressed through the challenges of the pandemic by cleaning up our neighbourhood in the spring, hosting soccer programs and gathering at our ice rinks. Let’s take this time as a moment to reflect on how we can move forward and re-engage with one another.
