I acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. I am grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. I recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory I reside on or I am visiting.
