Time for reconcili(action)

Photo: Christina Gray

This past weekend and the first weekend in June concluded the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). This was the last of all of the TRC events in Canada. There have been seven national TRC events since 2010 and the eighth event was the closing in which the findings of the TRC commissioners were presented.

The week prior to the closing, I thought to myself: 'This is the last one, there's not going to be another one of these again.'
