Plan for Toronto city hall Indigenous office moves ahead

Toronto’s most ambitious bid to recognize its first residents with a permanent Indigenous office stumbled when city hall security refused to allow a ceremonial drum into the building.

Councillor Mike Layton, co-chair of the Aboriginal affairs committee, had to rush downstairs to assure security officers the drum was vital for a smudge-and-singing ceremony to appropriately launch the historic meeting.

Is there going to be a Department of White Cis-Gendered Males too?
