“In 1996, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples observed, ‘A country cannot be built on a living lie.’ Now is the time, during the Canada 150 activities, to complete the story.

It’s time for the government to take action and make specific commitments to right this wrong. It’s time to turn recognition to action."
