TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION
 
I have never been so Ashamed of being a Canadian, now knowing what my ancestors and the Government did to the Indigenous Peoples of Canada. They sure tried to assimilate them to our Society while ignoring their Language and their Heritage and forcibly removing the Children from their families.

This was an inhuman act that should have never occurred here in Canada. We had lots to learn from them instead of forcing our way of life and our religions onto them. We as a society are motivated by money and greed and we don't respect nature as the Indigenous People Do. We had much to learn from their way of life and their Love of Nature.

I DEEPLY APOLOGIZE for what they did to you, because I respect YOU and I respect your Heritage and your Traditions while they obviously did not. I am so sorry for the trauma that you where forced to endure at such a young age. Know that myself and Millions of Canadians like me share this Shame and want to try to help you as much as we can to repair our relations between us.
