HAT Monthly Speaker
OISE, 252 Bloor St. west, Room 4-414
Speaker: Catherine Rodd, Toronto-based video producer
Topic: The Truth and Reconciliation Commission: A Personal Perspective
The closing ceremonies of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission marked the end of one journey and the beginning of another. Catherine Rodd is a Toronto-based video producer. She covered the event for the United Church, one of the parties to the Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. This is the single most important issue before all Canadians. Truth and Reconciliation may be our last chance to get it right. The time has come to fundamentally alter the role aboriginal people play in Canadian society.
