Opening Remarks from Regional Chairman

 

Regional Chair Emmerson made the following remarks:

 

Yesterday we celebrated National Aboriginal Day, recognizing the unique heritage, diverse cultures and ongoing contributions of Indigenous Peoples to this country.

I would like to begin today’s meeting of Committee of the Whole by acknowledging that York Region extends over lands originally used and occupied by Indigenous Peoples, and on behalf of York Region, I would like to thank First Nations and the Métis for sharing this land.

I would also like to acknowledge the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation as our closest First Nation community - one that we strive to build a cooperative and respectful relationship with.
