Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission is gathering statements from prisoners in Canada’s jails.

The TRC is visiting two prisons in Saskatchewan later this week.

And they just wrapped up a week-long visit the Northwest Territories. It was the first time that the TRC spoke with inmates there about their residential school experiences.

But as APTN National News reporter Cullen Crozier finds out, opening up about the past is sometimes easier said than done.
