City council asks for timeline and budget on action plan by the fall
The City of Edmonton is working on a tailor-made plan to improve safety and well-being for Indigenous people, based on the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG).
On Wednesday, city council looked at a report with a general framework, which came from the city’s Indigenous Relations Office. It included both short- and long-term projects.
Council then asked administration for a specific action plan, timelines and a budget by this fall. Coun. Aaron Paquette was the one who put it forward.
Paquette, who is Métis, said the initiatives mean a lot for the city and his own family.
“This issue has impacted and affected my family in very personal ways,” Paquette said at the council meeting.
