Best Councillor

Gold Winner Lindell Smith

Silver Winner Waye Mason

Bronze Winner Lisa Blackburn

Lindell Smith is three years into his big gig at City Hall, and not only does he continue to earn the respect of his colleagues, but the citizens of Halifax say he’s the best at his job, too. His secret? He doesn’t play by traditional politician rules. “I just keep things simple. I don’t do things for political gain, I just do it because either it’s right or I feel some kind of attachment to it.” He’s learned that “you can be yourself in a role as a politician and still hold your integrity.”
