Support Indigenous Reconciliation, TRC based Education Upgrades

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

Whereas Ontario is situated on the traditional territory of Indigenous peoples, many of whom have been on this land for at least 12,000 years;

Whereas in 2015 the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada released its final report: “Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future” which made 94 recommendations or “Calls to Action” for the Government of Canada;

Whereas reconciliation must be at the centre of all government decision making;

We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:

  • Continue reconciliation work in Ontario, by implementing the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
  • Reinstate the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation
  • Work with First Nations leaders to sign cooperative, government-to-government accords
  • Support TRC education and community development (e.g.: TRC summer writing sessions)
  • Support Indigenous communities across the province (e.g.:cleaning up Grassy Narrows
