WINNIPEG – Mayor Brian Bowman has another idea to improve indigenous relations in our city.
He’s pitching an “Indigenous Accord” at an executive policy committee meeting Wednesday.
He says it would provide a framework for a partnership between indigenous and non-indigenous people in Winnipeg moving forward and help ensure we live up to recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Groups and organizations would be asked to sign on and report on their progress over the next few years.
The proposal would need to be approved by city council.
