While the province is seeing a windfall from record resource revenues, workers across the province are struggling to make ends meet due to record inflation and soaring fuel costs. The government’s balance sheet might be looking good, but workers are struggling with their personal finances and are worried about how they will be able to afford groceries or put gas in their car.
The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is an opportunity for all of us to reflect upon the tragedy of the residential school system, to honour the victims and survivors of residential schools, and to commit to reconciliation.

Sign the petition today.
