Unveiling of Angel Way (K. Leibovici)

Councillor K. Leibovici, on behalf of Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, recognized the Unveiling of Angel Way on June 14, 2011, which is the honorary name given to 101A Avenue between 97 Street and 96 Street, in response to a request that was sent out from the City of Iqaluit, Nunavut, to all Capital Cities in Canada to have a street named “Angel Street” to honour all the women who have been the victims of violence. Edmonton is now one of those cities that have the honor of Angel Way. The Aboriginal Women's Professional Association, the Centre to End All Sexual Exploitation (formerly PAAFE), Sisterhood Movement, Kate Quinn, Karen McKenzie and Jan Reimer were involved along with many other people and organizations to make this a reality. The Cree name for the street is Okîsikow (Angel) Way.
