Yesterday was Canada’s first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The day of recognition for Canada’s role in the  cultural genocide and assimilation of Indigenous peoples into Canadian society, was one of the 94 Calls to Action recommended by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, 2015. It was not until the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation confirmed the location of roughly 200 burial sites at the former Kamloops Residential School earlier this year, that Parliament approved the new federal statutory holiday.

I wonder what it will take before another next Call to Action will be addressed?
