About Bill

vote bill knight ward 6

After being homeless at age 14, Bill founded and then grew B&B Demolition for 18 years, sold the company in 2015, and continued to help other Edmonton companies grow as an investor and mentor. Bill is a well-known Edmonton philanthropist through his work with Kids with Cancer, the Royal Alexandra Hospital, Singing Christmas Tree, and Sorrentino's Compassion House - among many others. He is a three-time recipient of the National Philanthropy Day Award, was Alberta Venture's Construction Person Of The Year (2013), and was named a Business Leader of Tomorrow by Business in Edmonton Magazine. Now, as a long-time resident of Ward 6 with his wife Grace and son Steven, Bill wants to bring his unique experience and abilities to Council and help City Hall respect your tax dollars, the homeless, and your neighbourhood.

About Me

Bill's Priorities

My platform focuses on 3 main issues:

1) More Value for Your Taxes

Bill will protect every dollar and cent of your taxes, hold management accountable, help frontline city workers find efficiencies, communicate their great ideas to council, champion entrepreneurship, promote economic development, and bring business-minded decision making back to city hall.

2) Compassionate City 2.0

Bill believes we should invest in the homeless and save your tax dollars long-term through city-funded nonprofit-operated Wellness Centres that offer guaranteed day jobs, meals, showers, counselling, and basic medical services – including safe injection - all under one roof.

3) Accountable to Your Neighbourhood

Bill will propose mandatory weekly door-knocking between elections so that Councillors must face their constituents' concerns about infill development, road and alley maintenance, and crime – the issues that affect you every day.
