Truth. Reconciliation. Find your call to action.
In 2015, Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission published 94 calls to action urging all levels of government to work together to change policies and programs in a concerted effort to repair the harm caused by residential schools and move forward with reconciliation. Three years later, critics say that not enough has been done to fulfil those 94 calls to action.
In the meantime, public discussion around the Raymond Cormier and Gerald Stanley trials show a province that remains deeply polarized. It has led people to wonder: Is reconciliation possible?
On March 22, CBC Manitoba is putting on a town hall discussion, 'CBC Asks: What is reconciliation worth to you?' at St John's High School, 401 Church Ave. Hear from a panel as they explore the possibilities of moving reconciliation forward and how Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians can work together on this path. Please help support the breakfast and lunch program at St. John's High School by bringing a non-perishable food item to the event. The program supports not only St.John's but also elementary schools in the community.
Moderating our way into the discussion are CBC Radio One hosts, Ismaila Alfa, Marcy Markusa, Jillian Taylor and Lenard Monkman. Invited to the conversation will be Marie Wilson, co-commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Ry Moran, Executive Director, National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, and others.
