In 2015, Canada's Truth and Reconciliation commission delivered its final report as well as 94 calls to action urging Canadians to work together to move forward with reconciliation and repair the harm caused by residential schools. Many individuals and organizations in Saskatchewan have met the call. But, two years later, not much has been done to fulfil those 94 calls to action.

In the meantime, public discussion around the Gerald Stanley trial show a province that remains deeply polarized. It has led people to wonder: Is reconciliation possible?

On March 20, join us for our town hall discussion,'CBC Asks: Is reconciliation possible?', located at CBC Saskatchewan, 2440 Broad Street in Regina. Join our panel as they explore whether our province has the will to become a place in which communities are truly reconciled. We'll ask what Saskatchewan people have to do to achieve this moving forward, and we'll ask about how they are building reconciliation in their own lives.

Join The Morning Edition's Zarqa Nawaz with: Marie Wilson, former Commissioner with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, James Daschuk, author of Clearing the Plains; Chief Cadmus Delorme of the Cowessess First Nation, and Shawna Oochoo, executive director of Regina's White Pony Lodge.

The panel will explore what we need to do to achieve reconciliation. How can we fulfill the calls to action? You'll have opportunities to ask questions and/or share your own views. Tickets are free but seating is limited. Reserve your seat
