What are the Truth and Reconciliation Closing ceremonies about?

There’s a national effort taking place this week. This is what it’s about.

“This is not aboriginal history. This is Canadian history. All are invited to bear witness, not as observers. It’s not a passive activity. It’s a very engaged activity. It’s a pledge to be there, to be present, to learn and to take forward what you learn and make sure it’s gets spread further.” TRC Commissioner, Dr Marie Wilson
