National Chief’s Office, Assembly of First Nations
As I stated to the Catholic church, hollow apologies will no longer be accepted. As National Chief, on behalf of all First Nations, I expect concrete action and changed behaviors. The Prime Minister must demonstrate through actions that he is committed to the healing path forward.
Let’s remember that Truth and Reconciliation is about survivors and those children who died in the institutions of assimilation and genocide. Therefore, I ask media outlets to give as much time to survivors’ stories as they are giving to the Prime Minister’s behavior on September 30.
