“From the outset, this Commission has emphasized that reconciliation is not a one-time event; it is a multi-generational journey that involves all Canadians.” – Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future page 209
“Why don’t we do better, when we know better?”
“It is not enough to know;
It is not enough to care:
We have to do something!”
[Cindy Blackstock, Pathways to Reconciliation Conference, Winnipeg, June 2016.]
We propose that each group be committed to meet ten times to explore Reconciliation in its many dimensions. Dates, times, and locations will be posted as this project progresses and reaches more people. Contact us to be notified of events and news.
Getting to know, respect and appreciate one another through our circles is already a significant action toward reconciliation.
Other actions we can take
• Sign a petition
• Attend a meeting or event
• Join a group
• Talk to your employer/supervisor about addressing reconciliation in your workplace
• Contact a politician
• Contact a government official
• Write to a newspaper
• Form a group
• Make a donation
• Choose one of the 94 recommendations of the TRC and make it your cause.
