Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS the Community and Protective Services Committee is recommending that City Council approve the proposal to name the future park located at 305 Lysander Place, “W.O. Wilhelmina Walker Park”/“parc de l’O-Ere-Wilhelmina-Walker,” in honour of Wing Officer Wilhelmina Walker, as described in the staff report titled, “Commemorative Naming Proposal – W.O. Wilhelmina Walker Park”; WHEREAS following the Committee’s approval of the staff report on May 17, 2018, Ms. Walker’s family requested that the future park be named “Wing Officer Willa Walker Park,” in order to provide clarity with respect to the meaning of “W.O.,” and because “Willa” was the only name that Ms. Walker was known by; and WHEREAS the name “Wing Officer Willa Walker” was vetted through Emergency Services and does not pose any concerns with respect to name duplication; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that City Council approve that the future park located at 305 Lysander Place be named “Wing Officer Willa Walker Park”/“ parc de l’Officière-d’Escadre-Willa-Walker”.
