Canada Day 2021: A time to reflect
The recent findings of unmarked graves of children found on or near the grounds of former Indian Residential Schools have sent shockwaves through Indigenous communities across the country. All of Canada is in mourning and stands with First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples in this difficult time.
Systemic racism has also not spared racialized communities, which have been the targets of violence across the country in recent weeks.
On July 1st, let us take time to reflect on the violence that our institutions may have inflicted, the impact that this violence continues to have today on Indigenous peoples and racialized communities, and the journey that each of us must take toward reconciliation and living together.
