The Halifax Regional Municipality announced the members of the newly formed Special Advisory Committee on the Commemoration of Edward Cornwallis and Commemoration of Indigenous History. The advisory committee’s focus over the coming months will be to identify a path forward that better recognizes Indigenous history, particularly of the Mi’kmaq, as it pertains to lands now known as Halifax Regional Municipality. Part of that path forward involves providing Regional Council with recommendations on our shared history, including how we commemorate Edward Cornwallis on municipal assets, including Cornwallis Park, the statue, and Cornwallis Street.
