Discovery of unmarked graves ‘really triggered a lot of emotion,’ says Liberal MP and residential school survivor McLeod, who wants Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to work ‘shoulder to shoulder,’ and transform Canada
MPs across the country talk about the former residential schools once located in their ridings, and how they, as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report said, can support Indigenous peoples 'as they heal from the destructive legacies of colonization that have wreaked such havoc in their lives.'
Liberal MP Mike McLeod, pictured in the House, said 'Indigenous nations need to go back to what was agreed to in our treaties and our Métis script that we would work together and co-exist. That means shoulder to shoulder with each other.' Photograph courtesy of Mike McLeod
