A good two months after his re-election, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised the Canadians an intensified fight against the climate crisis and a reconciliation with the indigenous population.
Tuesday’s government statement was, as is tradition, read from her throne by indigenous Governor General Mary Simon. The Liberal government also made coping with the pandemic and better caring for children one of its priorities under the new legislature.
Hundreds of corpses of indigenous children are found
“The non-indigenous population understands and accepts the real impact of the past and the pain suffered by generations of indigenous people. Together they go the path of reconciliation, ”said the speech.
Finds of hundreds of bodies of Canadian indigenous children in the vicinity of former boarding schools had highlighted the crimes against the indigenous peoples in recent months. Trudeau had apologized and let the flags on public buildings wave at half mast for months.
