Nate has been a strong ally in support of action towards reconciliation with Indigenous communities.
He has made public statements in the House, he has been an active member of a caucus working group focused on Indigenous child welfare, and he has raised the issues of boil water advisories and discrimination in policing and foster services directly with the Ministers responsible.
Locally, Nate hosted a Kitchi blanket exercise in association with KAIROS at East Lynn Park, a town hall with Indigenous leaders, and a public screening of Indian Horse and a thoughtful conversation with award-winning author Tanya Talaga. Audio/video is available at beynate.ca
Recently, Nate led efforts to establish a working relationship between Toronto MPs (the Liberal 416 caucus) and the Toronto Aboriginal Support Services Council.
