Quotes from leadership

Enoch Cree Nation Chief Billy Morin

"Our respective leaders are choosing to get out in front and be directors of change rather than sit back like the last 100 years when we kind of just lived beside each other. We don't want to do that anymore; we want to work together and move things forward."  Source ANN 

Mayor of Edmonton Don Iveson

"We are now setting about building a respectful government-to-government relationship between the City of Edmonton and Enoch First Nation in exactly the same way that we are working to build the same kind of respectful and collaborative relationships with our municipal partners in the region." Source 630 CHED
