Lac La Biche County went national on Wednesday night, aired across Canada on CBC TV's Still Standing series. Filming for the show took place last summer, with production crews and Harris in the community for a week. Brenda Robitaille spoke about the significance of the area's fisheries, taking Harris and viewers on a history of the commercial fishery, mink ranches and Lac La Biche caviar. He knows the show will help bring more attention to the community, and his segment is good for local archery and the sport in general. The tipis — part of a tourism partnership between local Indigenous groups and Alberta Parks — provided a stunning backdrop with the Lac La Biche shoreline as she and Harris discussed the area's indigenous foundations and the future.

Workplace bullying on the riseAt any given time, 20 to 30 per cent of workers in North America have experienced workplace bullying, and that number soars to 60 per cent for first responders. There are federal and provincial occupational health and safety legislation to address workplace bullying and sexual harassment. And when organizations just pay lip service to keeping employees protected from bullying and sexual harassment, people get hurt. Canada’s Criminal Code also requires amendments that would make workplace violence, bullying and sexual harassment criminal offences. Chan’s death is a stark reminder that workplace bullying and sexual harassment is deadly.

Following these celebrations, fans also gave praise to the commissioned Indigenous art featured in the games from the beginning. Four Indigenous artists from Atlantic Canada were chosen to hand-paint a total of 200 hockey sticks: Lorne Julien, Emma Hassencahl-Perley, Robin Jipjaweg Paul, and Nathalie Sappier. Sharing Indigenous art in popular culture, such as through hockey sticks or jerseys, amplifies the knowledge, philosophies, and stories of communities that have been silenced by colonialism. These Indigenous designs are amplifying the roots of hockey in a meaningful way, while hopefully making room for young Indigenous hockey players to join the sport. #RepresentationMatters #indigenousdesigner @Oil_Foundation @EdmontonOilers pic.twitter.com/tsVm1h5Lyi — Lance Cardinal (@lancecardinal75) November 28, 2022The importance of representing Indigenous designs in hockey is a meaningful step towards reconciliation and celebrating Indigenous histories.

"We have a lot of people who are discharged from hospital and show up in a cab sometimes still wearing their hospital bracelets, still without appropriate clothing," Whitecloud said. "But we also have people that are discharged from hospital with long-term care plans. Clinicians work with patients to come up with a discharge plan, including consulting with a social worker and connecting with local shelters. Blaikie Whitecloud would also like to see shelters funded to provide more medical services, like a primary health clinic.
