Truth and Reconciliation day

Today is National Day for #truthandreconciliation  On this day of reflection, we recognize and educate ourselves on the history and legacy of residential schools, and wear orange to remember the Indigenous children, honour survivors and the community.(credit: PetValu)

We can’t wait for the govt to fix things. If the last two years have taught us anything…change begins with people. Not power. Today is a day of remembrance, acknowledgement, so that thousands of lives are not forgotten and the ones still suffering are supported how they need
