Bob Nault MP Column Preserving Indigenous Languages

KENORA – Bob Nault, Member of Parliament (Kenora Riding), released the following statement on National Indigenous Peoples’ Day:

“Today we celebrate the Indigenous Peoples from across the country for the many contributions and sacrifices they made for our country. Without their knowledge, guidance, and stewardship, our home would not be what it is today.

“The path to reconciliation is one we must walk together; a journey which requires mutual respect, continuing to build trust, and healing. While we have made great strides, there is still more to do.

“Today also marks the first day of summer, and there is no better way to celebrate than by joining in on the many activities happening throughout the Kenora riding to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples’ Day. I encourage you to explore events near you and take a moment to acknowledge the positive impacts of Indigenous Peoples everywhere.”
