City hires new indigenous commissioner

The city has hired a new commissioner for relations with indigenous communities. Lauréanne Fontaine replaces Marie-Ève Bordeleau, who had held the role since 2019. Previous to Bordeleau, the city had an advisor whose claim to be Mi’kmaq was not well supported.

Interestingly, it seems the new commissioner, Lauréanne Fontaine, described as Innu, is a redhead.
