@TMFoundation_ claims that Archbishop Emeritus @TutuLegacy should not bear the responsibility of the shortcomings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Is this correct or not? My response is….
1. When you choose to evaluate the TRC, you can take a political/ economic stance or a legal stance. There is a huge difference between these positions which are complimentary at the same time.
2. TM argues that it wasn’t Tutu’s responsibility to address inequality after apartheid but the government. Although he is right at some level he misses a very crucial point: the PURPOSE of the TRC.

1/9 This ordeal has been so personal and emotional for me and my family. Can you imagine moving to a new city, being introduced to “an Elder from your home territory” who is this man? Can…
2/9 Imagine realizing quickly that this man was not Ojibwe but was a non-native man appropriating your language, your art, your family’s stories of intergenerational trauma related to IRS and the Sixties Scoop? Can you imagine the years of work my family & other families...
3/9 have had to commit to to quite literally piece themselves back together after decades of settler colonial brutality aimed at breaking our family/kinship ties and our connection to our homelands?...

Double Bunking in an ICU is absurd.

Yes, warm bunking is normal in Oil & Gas but double bunking is a huge flag for the capacity of #abpoli health system.

I’ll never forget the thrill I felt at the Elders & Traditional Peoples Gathering 2 weeks ago at @TrentUniversity, meeting #Cree actor/artist #MichelleThrush and #Anishinaabe journalist/author @TanyaTalaga, as well as being surrounded by some of the most epic people in my life. ImageImageImageImage
Thrush’s solo performance of #InnerElder wove a beautiful blend of truth, laughter, pain & hope. Got Talaga’s autograph after she spoke about her book, #SevenFallenFeathers, a must-read for folks seeking #truth about how we continue to fail Indigenous youth.

Congratulations to my old @LawMcGill dean, Nicholas Kasirer, on his nomination to the #SupremeCourt. I am confident he will be a compassionate, discerning & rigorous justice.

That being said...

@LawMcGill Let's meditate for a moment on the colonial structure of the Court, which is concerned with representation insofar as it aims at equity between Canada's two founding colonial powers, languages and legal traditions:
@LawMcGill The Supreme Court Act requires that 3/9 justices come from Québec. The official languages of the Court are English and French, and all justices are required to be functionally bilingual in both of Canada's colonial languages.

1. I was not expecting this to be so widely shared & requested.

Folks wanted this in a non-fb format - a Treaty Acknowledgement I gave this week in Urban Planning Committee.

It is very brief and therefore imperfect but maybe it helps.

Can I suggest some reading, sir?
2. Start with Buried Voices by @jhrnews. Data shows Indigenous peoples are vastly underrepresented in Ontario media compared to other stories. Seven times less, in fact, than what should proportionally reflect the population.…
3. Perhaps sit down with Seeing Red. Authors provide ample evidence colonial constructs have dominated depictions of Indigenous ppls in newspapers in Cda. They argue media images of Native inferiority have contributed to marginalization of Indigenous ppl.…

1. As @blueravenart noted, it is unfortunate that @downiewenjack gets $5million in today's budget but the @NCTR_UM gets nothing.… #TRC #Indigenous #Budget2018
2. It is not that the Downie-Wenjack fund, and spaces for reflection and reconciliation, are bad - but we are still fighting for the truth BEFORE reconciliation: #TRC #Indigenous #Budget2018
3. At a time when anti-Indigenous racism is rampant, Sen. Beyak is beaking off accusing the TRC as fake news while opening and holding space for residential school deniers....… #Budget2018
