A Councillor, now Elder
Members of the Wagmatcook Band Council pose during a recent Council Meeting in honour of Councillor Tommy Peck (front row far right) who turned 60 the day of the meeting. THE birthday was a turning point for the humble councillor as it is traditionally the age at which the Mi'kmaq consider someone to have become an elder. Joining Councillor Peck are (back row, l-r): Councillor Peter Pierro, Councillor Lester Peck, Chief Norman Bernard, (front row, l-r) Councillor Cornelia Peck, Councillor Jason Peck and Councillor Angela Pierro.
