Halifax council puts Cornwallis name on city property under microscope

In a move Halifax’s mayor calls a step toward reconciliation with indigenous people in the municipality, regional council has voted to examine the use of Edward Cornwallis’s name on city property.

Mayor Mike Savage says council’s decision Tuesday stands by a pledge it made in 2015 to develop a strong working relationship with the city’s aboriginal residents based on truth, dignity and mutual respect.

“I am completely convinced this is the right thing to do,” Savage said. “If we’re going to really live truth and reconciliation, we need to deal with issues like this.”
