TRC’s final national event opens in Edmonton

APTN National News
The Truth and Reconciliation’s 7th and final national event opened this morning in Edmonton on Treaty 6 territory.
For the past 5 years, the TRC has travelled the country to gather statements from survivors of Canada’s residential school system. The schools were full of children who were taken from their homes and institutionalized. This system to assimilate children went on for 140 years and saw tens of thousands of children grow up without family.
