"Nelson Mandela Square" approved

All councillors agree the front lawn of city hall's heritage building should be renamed Nelson Mandela Square.

At today's council meeting, the proposal cleared its final hurdle. A commemorative sign and plaque will highlight the location, which is next to the Human Rights Monument.

Mayor Jim Watson calls the former South African leader, who is an honourary Canadian citizen, one of the most remarkable, respected individuals in our lifetime.
