Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation response to NDP Majority Victory in Alberta – Idle No More

The Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN) are ecstatic with the results of the last nights election ushering in a new NDP majority government in Alberta.  It is clear that Albertans also want change and we are encouraged this government will take the time to do the proper assessments that evoke that change.

As First Nations we are optimistic to finally have a government that recognizes and respects Indigenous rights and territories and look forward to sitting at the table with this new government to find effective ways to implement and respect Aboriginal rights across multiple sectors.

While the ACFN have raised multiple issues over the years relating to land management, environmental, health and education, we are finally looking forward to possibly resolving our concerns through a meaningful working relationship with the NDP government.

Congratulations Rachel Notley and all the NDP MLA’s we look forward to working with you to create a new and improved Alberta.
