Justice Murray Sinclair, Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, is the keynote speaker for a collaboration presentation involving TRUSU’s 7th annual Story Tellers Gala and the TRU President’s Lecture Series.

The discussion is scheduled for Oct. 26 at 6 p.m. in the Grand Hall. Admission is free with seating on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Justice Sinclair’s six years of gathering data and first-hand accounts from the survivors of residential schools allows us to address three fundamental questions:

    • What is the truth about what happened in residential schools?
    • Who is responsible for what happened?
    • What can we do as a nation and what can I do as an individual to assist moving reconciliation forward between non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal communities in Canada?
