October 22, 2018

Dalhousie University has officially opened the Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Legacy Space in the Killam Library. A Dal release states that the Space will facilitate reconciliation by providing accurate information about Indigenous history. “This is a space that encourages education and awareness about Indigenous history, and will serve as a constant reminder to students, faculty and staff of the university’s commitment to reconciliation,” said Dal President Richard Florizone. Dal and Chief Morley Googoo, the Assembly of First Nations Regional Chief for Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, chose the Killam Library for the Legacy Space because of its high traffic—according to the university, the library receives over a million visitors per year. Dal
