On Sunday I will be joining Canada’s first Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver.
The walk has been organized by Reconciliation Canada, an organization dedicated to supporting all Canadians – indigenous and non-indigenous alike – to renew relationships, based on a shared understanding of our histories and our cultures. Reconciliation Canada was born from a vision of Chief Dr. Robert Joseph, Hereditary Chief of the Gwawaenuk First Nation and was established as a collaboration between the Indian Residential Schools Survivor’s Society and Tides Canada Initiatives Society, in order to initiate a dialogue among indigenous and non-indigenous peoples on reconciliation and on walking a better future together.
The Walk for Reconciliation is the final event of Reconciliation Week Vancouver 2013 and aims to demonstrate our joint commitment to build better relationships to achieve resilient, sustainable communities.
I invite you to join me as I proudly walk together with Tsartlip First Nations member and Interim Leader of the Green Party of BC, Adam Olsen, as well as Green Party MP, Elizabeth May and Vancouver Green Party City Councilor, Adriane Carr.
