Edmonton's first racialized mayor and a diverse city council sworn in Tuesday afternoon.
Amarjeet Sohi, an immigrant from India and a former federal Liberal cabinet minister, won the municipal election last week.
He will lead the capital's most diverse council yet.
Eight of the 13 council members are women and four are people of colour.
Sohi says in a statement that he is excited for the ceremony, which will abide with all public health orders related to COVID-19.
Edmonton's council will have its first meeting following the swearing-in ceremony.
