Sponsored by: Congregations in West Point Grey The Truth and Reconciliation Commission invites non-Aboriginal Canadians to hear the truth about the mistakes we have made as colonizers in our relationship with Aboriginal peoples. We are invited to listen deeply to their stories so that greater healing and reconciliation can be facilitated in our broken relationship. We are invited to grapple with questions as part of a broader decolonization of attitudes and behaviors.

Our Aboriginal guests have been invited to tell their stories through singing, story and drumming to facilitate our listening and questioning.
