Justice, Truth, and Reconcilation
Yesterday, the social justice and the common good class heard eye opening stories about poverty and injustice in Saskatchewan. As our discussion progressed, there was discussion of the horrifying legacy of the residential school system. We all agreed that more education is needed in order for Aboriginal survivors to find peace and for non-Aboriginal Canadians to confront this horrid colonial legacy. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission is certainly a good place to being addressing this history. How can the commission create the conditions for a just settlement? What more can (and should) be done for a more just future?
