What We Heard Report
The City thanks everyone who participated in the Municipal Naming Project.
On May 9, 2023, the recommendations will be presented to the Standing Committee of the Whole (SCOW), made up of all members of Council.
Most of the input during the public participation phase was constructive and was included in the What We Heard Report.
Also included in the input were hurtful comments that reflected unconscious bias or harassment; these comments were not included in the What We Heard Report; instead, they were included in a Racism, Harassment, and Discrimination Summary Report.
The City did not plan to release this second report; however, the City received a FOIP request after the March SCOW meeting. The City determined there was no valid legal reason not to disclose the Racism, Harassment and Discrimination Report to the applicant, so the City is releasing that report as well.
This report contains content about Indigenous peoples, the Indian Residential School system, and other equity-deserving groups that readers may find offensive, racist, and traumatic. Please read this report with caution and care.
The National Indian Residential School Crisis Line provides 24-hour crisis support to former Indian Residential School students and their families toll-free at 1-866-925-4419.
