The future public square adjacent to the Quebec city hall and overlooking the Fabrique coast will now be called Place de la Nation-Huronne-Wendat.
This is what Mayor Labeaume announced Friday late afternoon on the sidelines of the closing of the 2e First Nations and Municipal Summit on Reconciliation in Wendake.
This is a way of highlighting the important role played by this Nation in the Quebec City region, he insisted.
"This is a gift we have been waiting for a long time," said the Grand Chief of the Huron-Wendat Nation, Konrad Sioui, thanking the Mayor.
The future public square welcomes since 2017 the work of art Codex Populi, made by the Huron-Wendat artist, Ludovic Boney.
The future public square will be inaugurated in 2020. It will be redeveloped, at a cost of $ 300,000, "to make it a place of relaxation more friendly for citizens and tourists," says one.
