On Monday, January 23, 2017, my City Council colleagues and I voted to change the name of the Langevin Bridge to the Reconciliation Bridge. Although small, this act of reconciliation is an important first step along the path towards healing and understanding.
The recommendation to rename the bridge came out of the White Goose Flying Report, written by the Calgary Aboriginal Urban Affairs Committee (CAUAC) in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) 2015 final report.
The Calgary Aboriginal Urban Affairs Committee has further recommendations
on how we can heal our community, and achieve great things together.
If you missed it, here is my interview on the CBC Homestretch: The road to renaming the Langevin Bridge.
