I would like to start by honouring the land that I've lived on which has been the site of human activity since time immemorial. It is the traditional territories of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and most recently, The Mississaugas of the Credit River First Nations, the Delaware, the Kwikwetlem, Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations and now many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land, and by doing so, give my respect to its first inhabitants.
Ontario is covered by 46 treaties and other agreements, and is home to many Indigenous Nations from across Turtle Island, including the Inuit and the Metis. These treaties and other agreements, including the One Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant are agreements to peaceably share and care for the land and its resources. Other Indigenous Nations, Europeans, and newcomers, were invited into this covenant in the spirit of respect, peace, and friendship. I am mindful of broken covenants and I vow strive to make this right, with the land and with each other.
