Questionnaire Response

Shaun Loney - Mayoral Candidates

What got you into politics?

Two years ago my wife Fiona and I were cleaning up an abandoned homeless camp close to our home in St. Boniface. As we were picking up garbage, I realized that there had been a woman that had been forced to resort to living in a hollowed out tree. I knew then that I wanted to run for mayor and bring real change to our city.

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?

I’ve worked in and for Winnipeg and Manitoban communities for almost 25 years. Some personal highlights include leading Manitoba from last to first in energy efficiency from my role in the Manitoban government as Directory of Energy Policy in 1999, co-founding BUILD, a Social Enterprise that employs ex-criminals in order to reduce crime and create stronger communities, and co-founding Aki Energy, Western Canada’s largest residential geothermal company. In 2018 I was awarded the Governor General’s Meritorious Service Decoration for “remarkable contributions” and I’ve also authored two books on the topic of social innovation. 

What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee), and why are these issues important to you?

I’ve mentioned a few issues that I am passionate about in my previous answers such as homlessness, green energy, and crime. My passion around those issues will always hold firm. However, what I believe sets me apart from other candidates in this mayoral election is that the majority of my opponents look at the issues Winnipeg faces as problems that need to be solved, often by money. The way I see it, with the help of Social Enterprises and a lens of social innovation Winnipeg can view these “problems” rather as opportunities for meaningful change.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

Something my campaign and I value extremely highly is Indigenous guidance and support. We recently announced what our first 100 days in office would look like, where I announced I would immediately visit with Elder Mae Louise Campbell on October 27th for guidance and advice. 

With Love and Compassion, we can do anything. Feel free to get in touch via any of my social media pages, or find a time to come meet me in person at one of our upcoming events!
