Justice Seekers - Bi-Monthly

Recently Canada's Parliament passed Bill C-15 and it has received royal assent.  This is good news as Bill C-15 provides a significant framework for a reset in the working relationships between  Indigenous nations and communities and the Canadian state. Such a reset is essential for the path of decolonization and reconciliation.

As Christians, we now have the opportunity to practice gratitude for this important systemic step forward towards justice and reconciliation.  As Truth and Reconciliation Commissioner Murray Sinclair said at the closing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission “We have described for you a mountain, we have shown you the path to the top. We call upon you to do the climbing.” 

We recognize that with this legislation we are now in the foothills of this mountain.  We look forward to continuing to partner with you to implement the TRC Calls to Action in their entirety.
