Dear Chamber Family,
I think everyone feels the heartfelt sorrow on the recent discovery of the remains of 215 children who were students of the Kamloops Indian Residential School. Words cannot effectively express the deep sadness of this finding, especially because this is just the beginning process to find the truth about what happened there and other residential schools across the country. Part of this process is to find ways to honour the children and their families.
It's on each of us to become educated and aware of our history and the responsibility we all have towards truth & reconciliation for our indigenous family. I hope we take this time to have these conversations with our co-workers, friends, children, partners ...and ourselves.
