September Newsletter Preview : National Day For Truth and Reconciliation
September 30th will be the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation after the Royal Assent of Bill C-5. This bill establishes the Government of Canada’s commitment to reconciliation and remembrance of the tragic history of residential schools. This is due to the efforts of many Indigenous grassroot groups and individuals. Garry McLean, an Indigenous leader and mentor, was born on Lake Manitoba First Nation and became the lead plaintiff in the $15B lawsuit against the federal government over Indian Day Schools. He is remembered as an elder and warrior within the Indigenous community.
