Mayor's Communiqué

Posted on: August 16, 2021

i love creston - August/September 2021 - Our Councils, Building Together

“I am Mayor Ron Toyota, representing the Town of Creston. I would like to begin by acknowledging that this meeting is taking place on the unceded traditional territory of the Yaqan Nukiy within the Ktunaxa Nations”. This is the statement that I make to open all Town of Creston public meetings (such as Council meetings) and events. I am honoured and humbled every time I say those words for many reasons; not the least of which is because it is a reaffirmation of not just my personal connection and friendship with Chief Jason Louie, but also of the connection and friendship that exists between the Town of Creston and the Yaqan Nukiy (was LKB -- Lower Kootenay Band).
