Lukes — who has already been acclaimed as councillor in the new Waverley West Ward — said she feels Motkaluk will communicate with all councillors.

“I really believe that she will actually sit down with all 15 councillors on a regular basis and have meaningful consultations and discussions.”

“I really think it’s important that a mayor sit with councillors to hear what they are hearing from their ward.”

Lukes has verbally sparred with incumbent mayor Brian Bowman for some time now.
