What comes to mind and heart when you think of the pursuit of 'Indigenous Truth and Reconciliation in Canada''?
Obviously, the current discovery and reporting on the terrible treatment of indigenous peoples in Canada is reprehensible and tragic.
It is important for some semblance of justice to be served, but unlikely to produce positive results for those affected. The incidents occurred over 40 years ago, at the most recent. Those responsible for these atrocities are either old, infirm or deceased. The families would possibly benefit from reparations, but records may not be accurate. The entire situation is poised for additional corruption and fraud.
While it is important for the truth to see the light of day, it is also important to decide which part of it can be used for substantive change. Revisiting the past is not a particularly good way to improve the future, if the lessons learned cannot be absorbed, acted upon and promulgated.
