McGill University offers gesture of reconciliation with Indigenous people

One of Canada’s most prestigious schools has made a gesture of reconciliation with Indigenous people.

And from the sounds of it, it’s one of the first of many more to come from McGill University.

  1. Is there something about this comment that isn’t true that it was disallowed by APTN? What I have written is a well-documented fact and McGill itself can confirm.

    McGill University claims to have repaid monies illegally taken from Six Nations’ Trust in the 1800’s. It claims it repaid the monies to the federal government. It has failed to produce a receipt of having made that payment despite our many requests to produce it. When can Six Nations expect repayment including compound interest? Yes, this is a good start in the reconciliation process but I also want financial restitution for the monies illegally taken from our trust.
