In a historic win last night, the Alberta New Democrats will now form a majority government after Alberta’s Provincial Election.
“These are exciting and hopeful times that we live in,” states Chief Courtoreille, Grand Chief of Treaty 8 First Nations of Alberta, “as one of the youngest populations in Alberta, many of our people have never even seen a government that wasn’t Progressive Conservative. This is a truly monumental achievement for our new Premier and her party. I want to express our congratulations on behalf of all the Chiefs of Treaty No. 8.”
