Thunder Bay’s Aboriginal Liaison moves on
Anna Gibbon, Thunder Bay’s first Aboriginal Liaison, has been appointed Justice of the Peace to the Ontario Court of Justice.
Gibbon leaves her post at the city of Thunder Bay as of Feb. 6.
Gibbon has been the Aboriginal Liaison for Thunder Bay since 2008.
“As our first Aboriginal Liaison Anna brought her considerable skills to bear in supporting the development of the city’s first Aboriginal Liaison Strategy and has played a key role in fostering an improved relationship with the urban Aboriginal community,” said Thunder Bay city clerk John Hannam.
Sam Achneepineskum of Marten Falls will take on the Aboriginal Liaison position on an acting basis while the search for Gibbon’s replacement is conducted.
“Sam Achneepineskum is a respected Elder in the community and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position,” said Thunder Bay Mayor Keith Hobbs.
