Cynthia Block is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, a journalist and a communications specialist. She has had a life-long interest in public policy, and a strong preference to use evidence and data to drive decision-making. On Council, her priority issues include basic services, sustainability, indigenous reconciliation and downtown revitalization.
Cynthia would like City Council to focus on a longer time horizon in decision-making. Through partnerships with other levels of government, business, industry, community groups, residents and organizations in the surrounding geographical area, we have an opportunity to build a more modern, progressive and sustainable 21st-century city.
Cynthia is married with two teenaged children and Belle, a great Shepherd- cross. Free time is often spent on the spectacular Meewasin Trail.
