A Time for Learning and Reflection
This summer, the government of Canada announced that September 30 will be the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day will commemorate the tragic history and ongoing intergenerational impact of Canadian residential schools.
Price encourages everyone to use this day to learn about and reflect on the history of residential schools and to honor the survivors, families and communities that continue to grieve for those who were lost. This is an opportunity for us all to explore the diverse cultures and stories of the Indigenous peoples of Canada and to work toward meaningful change.
