SN 2017 Council and Band Manager Candidates have options for submitting their candidate profiles:
Veterans and other Vancouverites gathered at Victory Square on Wednesday morning in recognition of the thousands of Indigenous men and women who served in the military.
It was one of may National Aboriginal Veterans Day ceremonies that we held across the country and province.
Mayor Gregor Robertson, councillor Chris Lewis of the Squamish Nation and Chief Maureen Thomas of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation welcomed members of New Zealand’s Maori All Blacks rugby team at a ceremony held at Britannia gym Thursday morning. The Maori All Blacks performed a Haka at the ceremony, ahead of their match against Team Canada Friday night at BC Place.
Renaming Siwash Rock should be the start of new signage throughout the Vancouver area that finally recognizes the region’s authentic, rich history.
Erecting new signs that include First Nations place names will help fuel not only a spirit of reconciliation and inclusiveness for the area’s residents but also create a more genuine experience for visitors who come here from around the world and seek authenticity. They want to know more about our culture and all the eras of our collective history, not just the most recent 150 years, so changing the signage to include Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh names is a good business decision. Everyone – native and non-native – stands to benefit.
