Halifax church changing name due to namesake's treatment of Indigenous people

The Cornwallis Street Baptist Church will change its name because Halifax founder Edward Cornwallis was an "oppressor of our First Nations brothers and sisters," pastor Rhonda Britton says. "We don't know what the name of the church is changing to," she said Sunday. "We just know what's it's changing from."
