The truth is hard. Reconciliation is harder—comes at an opportune time for our country, as we seek to understand how best to implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) recommendations. In this keynote, The Honourable Murray Sinclair reminds us that reconciliation is not an act of forgiving past wrongs. It is a process of dismantling the ongoing colonial relationship that treats Indigenous people as less than human. It is not a matter of benevolence or charity. It is a matter of respect and rights.
