      UBCM delegates started UBCM convention by adopting a resolution to declare a year of Reconciliation with First Nations across British Columbia.

      The wording of the resolution is as follows:

      WHEREAS the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, with the support of Reconciliation Canada, have announced that its National Event for BC take place in the City of Vancouver from September 16 to 22, 2013; and

      WHEREAS the Union of British Columbia Municipalities has actively engaged with First Nations communities and peoples through the work being done by its own First Nations Relations Committee; and

      WHEREAS the City of Vancouver, the host community for this year's Union of British Columbia Municipalities Annual Convention, and many other communities have declared this year to be their Year of Reconciliation with First Nations peoples and communities; and

      WHEREAS making such a commitment is the first step in fostering a new relationship based in respect and honesty,

      BE IT RESOLVED that the Union of British Columbia Municipalities also declare this year, 2013, as its year of Reconciliation with First Nations across British Columbia.
