Saskatoon Declares Year of Reconciliation

UNDRIP and commitments to Reconciliation
Saskatoon

Saskatoon City Council has unanimously declared a “Year of Reconciliation” beginning on July 1, 2015. Council's June 22 motion calls on City Administration to “work with the Office of the Treaty Commission, and other community groups, leaders and institutions in Saskatchewan, to promote reconciliation in our province.” The City also committed to examining ways to implement the recommendations contained in the recent Truth and Reconciliation Commission report. 

Saskatoon Mayor Don Atchison expressed his strong support for reconciliation this morning on CTV Morning Live.  The OTC's Harry Lafond and Rhett Sangster also discussed the OTC's work on reconciliation with CTV, citing the efforts to help those evacuated from northern fires as an example of reconciliation.
