Secret Path Week
October 19, 2020

Secret Path week is a national commemoration to further the conversation about reconciliation – to take reconciliACTION - this week we acknowledge this shameful chapter in Canadian history, the impacts of which are still felt today.

This year we will watch and fondly remember the original performance of Secret Path in 2016. This year although we won’t be able to walk together... we will all take a walk remembering Chanie – my walk will be on the Beltline in my riding, a former railway track. In Secret Path week, we think about and acknowledge the human cost of colonialism, residential schools and the racist ideology that informed them. Gord Downie called on us, all of us, to do better. Reconciliation is a journey that must be guided by listening, then acting upon what we learn from whose who have been harmed. Watch my full message below:
