The communication company provided its comments through an Open Letter posted to the CityWest website on June 1st.
The correspondence one which noted of the many relationships that the company has with Indigenous communities and people, including many within their own staff positions.
“We have relationships with many Indigenous people in our offices, in our service areas, and across the province, and we are mindful that this horrible discovery is taking an emotional toll on everyone. We encourage all levels of government and Canadians from all backgrounds to acknowledge the pain of this tragedy and create a space for healing, so we can move forward together.” -- Stefan Woloszyn, CEO of CityWest.

CityWest is among a number of groups and organizations in the city and across the Northwest to make similar calls to action, as we noted earlier this week, the Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce recently outlined its own initiatives towards reconciliation, the local plans building on a province wide initiative from the BC Chamber.
