Dear Friends and Family,
In 1990, the Liberal Party of Canada became the first and only political party to formally recognize the unique place that Aboriginal peoples occupy in our great nation. Through the creation of the Aboriginal Peoples’ Commission, the APC provided Aboriginals the unique opportunity to represent themselves within a federal party.
During the weekend of January 13th to the 15th, Liberals everywhere, including the APC- will come together in Ottawa for the Biennial Convention to celebrate Canadian liberalism and to formally begin the process of rebuilding our party. During this important moment, several key things will occur:
- We will amend and vote on key Liberal policy and initiatives; and
- We will nominate and vote officers to the Liberal Party of Canada Executive.
Liberals have a proud history of working with Aboriginal people’s in Canada– from the Indian Residential Schools Apology and the Kelowna Accord to supporting the United Nations Declaration on Indigenous Rights. I wish to build upon the proud legacy of cooperation and understanding that the Liberal Party of Canada and Aboriginal people have built and fostered together and continue working toward greater inclusion for Aboriginal people in the Canadian political process.
It is for those reasons and many others that I have decided to submit my name for election as a candidate for Vice-President of Communications on the national executive of the Aboriginal Peoples’ Commission. The deadline for nominations is November 7th.
You can support me today by:
- Contributing $20 (or any other amount) to fund my campaign; and/or
- Purchasing a $10 Liberal Party of Canada membership and adding your name to support my nomination.
I cannot continue without your support and encouragement and I hope you will consider my candidacy.
