Emilie and her spouse, criminal defense lawyer, Michael Spratt are proud parents of three children, all born at the Montfort Hospital. Together Emilie and Mike host a popular pod-cast called The Docket.
Concerned that development driven planning is moving the core of Ottawa further away from Ottawa-Vanier, Emilie joined Bookmark the Core, a grassroots citizen advocacy group, that is focused on pushing city council and the library board for greater transparency on the Central Library project. She believes strongly that this new and exciting piece of social infrastructure should be located in the core of our great City.
At the end of 2015, Emilie had the privilege working with friends and neighbours to bring a Syrian family of six to Canada. The family is now thriving in the heart of Vanier. Emilie also provided pro bono legal counsel through the Sponsorship Support Program, assisting other aspiring refugee sponsors with their refugee sponsorship applications.
Emilie is committed to working hard on behalf of all the people in Ottawa-Vanier. Her skill and passion will make her an effective advocate and a true leader on the national stage.
On April 3rd, vote Emilie Taman to strengthen the progressive opposition.
