As an independent business intelligence and project management contractor I add value to organizations with my senior, financial and project management skills. I use my business intelligence and IT skills to help peer group members reduce costs, and increase revenues with greater certainty.
I enjoy the process of conflict resolution. I'm an innovative thinker and I have a passion for the environment.
It has become common for politicians and public speakers to preface their remarks or address with " we are unceded Algonquin territory".
I get it.
But today, we have bigger fish to fry. 50,000 or more citizens of Ottawa resort to the food bank to be sustained. 10,000 families require affordable housing.
The virtue signalling about the colonial past and need for reparations is all right. But a more suitable epithet might be:
" as we move forward with spending tax payers dollars, let us not forget that 50,000 of us depend on the food bank to live, and 10,000 families still need affordable housing here on the unceded territory of the Algonquin... Meegwich"
You could also add that we have three missions within a kilometer of Canada's parliament, the capital of Canada, a G7 nation.
I think if you want to hammer home a message and do any virtue signalling you might want to get down and dirty with it.
