How A Small-City Councillor In B.C. Became One Of Canada’s Most Vocal Advocates For Israel: A Fireside Chat With Councillor Ian Ward Of Colwood, British Columbia

April 10, 2024

Ian Ward is a Councillor in Colwood, British Columbia, on Vancouver Island, a suburb of Victoria, with a population of just under 20,000 people.

He has also become a leading voice of moral clarity, advocating for both Israel and the Jewish People, even though as an elected official in a municipality with a relatively small Jewish community, there is little electoral benefit in doing so.

Ian joins us as a guest on this week’s podcast to discuss what prompted him to become so vocal, the feedback he has been getting from constituents, and why he thinks more municipal politicians need to stand up and make their voices heard.
