If You Can Make A Difference, Then You Should

It is through these examples that I understand leadership -- that it is about service, about helping those in need and about doing the right thing, not for some reward, but simply because it is the right thing to do. As I look around at my province I see other examples of leadership and service.

Honour the Apology: Fasting for My Father, a Residential School Survivor

I was at my childhood home on the reserve when I heard the news -- my father and uncles were likely part of one of these "nutritional experiments," and one with clearly adverse side-effects at that. I felt as though a little piece of history reached out and punched me in the gut. Some friends and I have put out a call to Canadians to shed some of this negativity by uniting across cultural and religious lines. We are calling our gatherings (to be held today at noon) "Honour The Apology." To be clear, the Residential School era is not just "Native history." It is Canadian history. It is OUR history.
