CBC: ‘Reconciliation is restoration’: Town hall speakers emphasize relationships between, within communities

March 23, 2018 — 

As CBC reports:

Several other people spoke about the role of relationships in advancing reconciliation. Ry Moran, director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation at the University of Manitoba, said that although he sometimes feels like the word reconciliation has become a buzzword, it still has value.

“What we’re talking about doing is establishing respectful relationships and that’s a process, but we need a reason to come together and have that conversation … and if that’s framed through the language of reconciliation, that’s OK,” he said.
