Citizens of Leduc, 

We are pleased that after a productive mediation process, the City of Leduc and the Representative Plaintiffs have reached a positive and amicable resolution to the lawsuit brought against the City of Leduc alleging sexual misconduct. Today the courts approved the settlement agreement reached by the City of Leduc and the Representative Plaintiffs.

This settlement is a critical step forward in acknowledging the pain and harm caused to the victims, and represents a comprehensive, fair and reasonable resolution. It was through the commitment of both parties to a shared vision of a safe workplace that this settlement was reached so quickly. 

Financial compensation is just one aspect of the settlement. Our focus remains on fostering a culture of accountability, transparency, and safety within our community. We are firmly dedicated to learning from the past to prevent such occurrences from happening again. 

Healing and rebuilding trust will undoubtedly require time and effort. We are fully committed to undertaking the necessary work and engaging in ongoing conversations to ensure that our city becomes a place where everyone feels safe, respected, and valued. It is important to us that the City resolved this matter in a way that promotes healing, supports the affected parties, and allows us to refocus on our duty to the citizens of Leduc.   

During challenging times like these, it is essential that we come together as a community, supporting one another and working collectively to heal and rebuild trust.  


Leduc City Council
