Aboriginal City Councillor Named Top Citizen

Monday, January 05, 2009 at 14:46



A North Battleford Aboriginal man has been named the Battlefords and District Citizen of the Year.


Ray Fox will officially receive that honour during a banquet in North Battleford January 30th.


Fox has been involved in a long list of community groups, ranging from the United Way to the Chamber of Commerce.


He is also a city councillor.


In 2006, he was named the FSIN’s Citizen of the Year.


Fox sees this latest honour as proof that the non-Native community in the Battlefords is reaching out to the Aboriginal community.
