The TRC held its latest conference on the residential school experience here in Vancouver from March 1-3. Google the Truth and Reconcilation Commission to see the six entries from various publications on the matter including comments from Phil Fontaine and commission chair, Justice Murray Sinclair.

From the various comments made by individuals on both sides of this subject, there is still a long way to go before a full reconcilation of this matter can be achieved. However, the important thing is that a sincere public dialogue is now occuring, and my kudos go out to everyone from all  sides of the issue who are making this happen. Hopefully, the story of “Blue Saltwater” can become an integral part of this process.
