Maggie Burton


Councillor at Large, City of St. John’s

I believe in a St. John’s where residents feel connected to each other and to the place they call home regardless of age, ability, income, race, or gender. We face a lot of challenges as a city: a sprawling car-centric urban fabric, a harsh climate, an aging population, an uncertain provincial economy. Now more than ever, municipal politics has both immediate and long-term impacts on the day-to-day lives of Canadians as we grapple with the effects, both present and future, of the climate, economic, and social crises of our times. I believe that we can work together to improve the place we call home to build a healthy, sustainable, and just city that works for the residents of St. John’s. Currently, my portfolios are Planning and Development, Heritage, Youth, Audit, and Animal Care and Control. I serve as a City representative on the St. John’s Urban Indigenous Coalition. I am an ex-officio board member for the <a href="http://www.naacap.ca/">Northeast Avalon Atlantic Coastal Action Program</a> and a board member for <a href="https://www.thechildrenscentre.ca/">The Children’s Centre.</a> I co-chair the St. John’s Food Policy Council.
