Best Activist

Gold Winner El Jones

Silver Winner Carly Sutherland

Bronze Winner Rana Zaman

There really are no losers in the Best Activist category. A single individual calling for change; a single act of resistance means just as much, can have just as much impact, is just as brave as all those fighting the good fight. Which is not to undercut the sheer volume of inspirational labour El Jones continues to do for this city. The Nancy’s Chair in Women’s Study at Mount Saint Vincent University has spent another year speaking out against racism in the Maritimes and fighting against injustices like Canada’s failure of Abdoul Abdi and the prison conditions inside Central Nova. Jones takes home her fourth straight win as Best Activist in Halifax but she shares it with a city full of strong hearts. Winners, all.
