Truth

Recently I heard Chief Casimir‘s comment, referring to the deaths of children at the Kamloops residential school, “We had a knowing in our community that we were able to verify. To our knowledge, these missing children are undocumented deaths.”

I think there’s also been “a knowing” in the non-indigenous community. An uncomfortable and unacknowledged knowing. But now that we have seen that knowing reflected in cold, hard numbers – 215! – we must all face the painful truth.

It’s well worth listening to the words of the Honorable Murray Sinclair, Former senator who chaired the Truth and Reconciliation Commission: https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2021/06/01/murray-sinclairs-statement-on-the-remains-of-children-found-in-kamloops.html

Clearly, there is more truth to be told and heard.

There are two words in the tile of the  TRC: Truth and Reconciliation. Without truth, there can be no reconciliation. Both are crucial and long overdue.

  1. Thank you for this, Carol, and for the link to the Honorable Murray Sinclair's statement. As he says, there absolutely should be a full inquiry into this terrible aspect of the residential schools. It should have happened back then when they made their proposal, but at least now I hope it is seen as a critical part of the Truth and Reconciliation process.

I am Alecia Maldonado used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes…i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Dr Mandaker); he just got he just got his website (holyaraminta.com), has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helpsfor free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as witchhealing@outlook.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,Barrenness(need a child),goodLuck voodoo,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting somethingmore!
