But some Indigenous advocates say apologies are not enough.

“Apologies are good, but we get apologies all the time as Indigenous people, and nothing really changes,” says Niigaan Sinclair, a writer and the acting head of Native Studies at the University of Manitoba.

“I see everyday Canadians changing, but I don’t see people in power changing very much.

“Smart and active Indigenous people are saying, ‘Enough is enough.’ We saw the treatment of our parents and grandparents. We witnessed that, and we will never let that happen to us.”.
