‘We work in the trenches. We’re speaking for those who are not visible’
The chief of the Native Council of P.E.I. says she will continue to stand up for Indigenous people living off reserve on Mi’kmaw land, including those who use the controversial mobile harm reduction unit.
Lisa Cooper was elected chief for another four-year term on Saturday at the Native Council’s general assembly in Mill River. She said one of her goals is to build on programs started during her last term.
One of those programs is the mobile harm reduction unit, a van that provides clean needles, first-aid supplies — even clothing — to those in need.
