An Official Apology Ain't Magic
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Labrador on Friday to apologize for the federal government’s role in the residential school system.
It was an important and emotional step towards reconciliation between government and indigenous people.
I’m proud to say that I played a role in getting the Prime Minister to apologize. For many survivors, an apology was more important than compensation for their trauma.
You know, getting the Prime Minster of Canada to give an official apology for a historical wrong was not easy…
It started with a small group of brave and dedicated people who stood up for what they knew in their hearts was right.
And it took a team of qualified professionals who persevered for years to get the job done.
It’s like a quote I read recently by Colin Powell, “A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.”
Well, I’ve got a dream for Newfoundland and Labrador…
It involves meaningful and well-paying jobs, access to quality government services, respect for indigenous people, a thriving rural and urban economy, support for entrepreneurship, and fulfilling futures for young people.
I’m standing up to say that the Liberal government isn’t doing a good enough job, and there’s a better way.
I have a great team who is willing to fight the good fight with me for years to come.
But there’s one thing missing…
