"One of the Good Ones" is a comedic storytelling show. It's about my experiences at work, in my career, in my youth, and how it fits into today's conversation about race, diversity, and inclusion.

"One of the Good Ones" isn't just a collection of funny/awesome stories (though, I have funny/awesome stories), it's about furthering a conversation. It's me pushing back and challenging the ideas of diversity, allyship, and inclusion by using concrete examples.

The show at its core has the goal of growth and learning.

Land acknowledgement

Before we begin, I acknowledge that this show was created, performed and filmed on stolen
land. These are the traditional territories of many nations including the Mississaugas of the New
Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat peoples, and is
home to many First Nations Inuit and Métis peoples. We acknowledge these nations as the
stewards, caretakers and knowledge keepers on this land and the original storytellers. I feel
privileged to create and present here, and I acknowledge that as a settler, we must do more.

Our government has the capability to take further action into providing reparations for our
history of genocide. We have the means to investigate the missing and murdered Indigenous
women. We have the ability to provide access to clean drinking water. We have the
responsibility to seek justice for the atrocities done to the children of this land at residential
schools.

We know better, it’s time to be better.
