The B.C. Catholic has a preview from The Prairie Messenger's Kiply Lukan Yaworski on the next national Truth and Reconciliation Commission gathering in Saskatoon:
Organizers hope that the historic event  will bear fruit in greater understanding, reconciliation and healing for generations to come.

Justice Murray Sinclair, who chairs the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), spoke to media May 17, stressing the importance of the upcoming national event as part of the commission's mandate of gathering information and providing public education about the impact of the Indian Residential Schools on Canadian society.

"The public generally in Canada needs to be informed about this era in Canadian history in a way that brings home to them an understanding of why things are the way they are, and how things came about," Sinclair said.
