President's Commentary: Truth and Reconciliation Commission is a gift to us all

"The two or three Mi’kmaq women who sat with Nora Bernard around her kitchen table in Truro, Nova Scotia, in 1987 strengthened us all. They believed in themselves. They believed they could find many more men and women of good will to stand with them and fight the good fight for dignity and justice for all Indigenous people. And they did. This strengthens us all." — James Clancy, NUPGE National President
