City's Thoughts with First Nations during Prime Minister's Visit

Media Release - Trudeau Visit to WLFN

With Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Marc Miller visiting Williams Lake First Nation today to discuss the first phase of results from the St. Joseph’s Mission investigation, the City of Williams Lake’s thoughts continue to be with our Indigenous neighbours.

“We know this is a very difficult and sombre time for all First Nations communities, and we join the rest of the nation in mourning the loss of innocent lives, and look forward to positive steps being taken to achieve meaningful reconciliation,” said Chief Administrative Officer Gary Muraca.

In a letter sent to Prime Minister Trudeau last June, the City of Williams Lake stated its firm support for the call for the Federal government to provide funding for all residential school sites in Canada to be examined under the guidance of local First Nations and knowledge keepers.

The City of Williams Lake remains committed to reconciliation efforts, and will continue to work toward relationship building, increased understanding and action in collaboration with our First Nations neighbours.
