Mr. Speaker, today is the first anniversary of the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's final report.
I would like to acknowledge the incredible work of Senator Sinclair, Commissioner Wilson, and Commissioner Chief Littlechild for their work in advancing the cause of reconciliation in our country.
The report's calls to action provide all Canadians with a renewed path forward for Canada's unfinished journey of healing and reconciliation.
The government has committed to fully adopting the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and is moving forward with the missing and murdered indigenous women and girls inquiry. It is also making historic investments in education and infrastructure and is working in a full partnership with indigenous peoples to build a national framework to further ongoing reconciliation.
Reconciliation is the responsibility of every Canadian, and especially parliamentarians. I urge all members in the House to do their part.
