To all non-Indigenous Canadians, Settlers, we must do tell truths and take collective responsibility – reconciliation is currently performative in this country we now call Canada and without action becomes a metaphor. Please act, please learn, please speak up – use your voices, your privilege as citizens – once we know better we can do better. It’s about time.
