The Ford government has named the former chief of Lac Seul First Nation in northwestern Ontario as a special adviser on Indigenous affairs.
Clifford Bull, a former social worker who also ran as the PC candidate in the last June’s provincial election, will advise Indigenous Affairs Minister Greg Rickford on economic and social matters related to the community.
He’ll also act on behalf of Rickford and the premier as a liaison with other Indigenous community.
In a statement, Rickford says Bull, who takes up the newly created role immediately, has a ”proven track record of bringing communities and individuals together to achieve common goals.”
