Wpg Free Press: Sinclair issues challenge to help heal pain of schools

October 31, 2014 — 

The Winnipeg Free Press covered this year’s Knight Lecture, which was delivered by The Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair.

As reporter Ashley Prest writes:

In an address to several hundred spectators at the University of Manitoba’s Engineering and Technology Complex entitled “If You Think Truth is Hard, Reconciliation is Harder,” he challenged everyone to help make the necessary change.

Sinclair said the key to moving on from the suffering and shame will hinge on recognition of what took place.

“Things are going to change and if they’re going to change, we need to set the terms of what those future changes are going to result in.” he said. “Reconciliation is a hard road.”
