We stand in solidarity with all Indigenous peoples of Canada and with Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation for sharing this truth, and we mourn the loss of these 215 children and all those who never made it home from residential schools.

We acknowledge this tragedy and the history of injustices inflicted upon our Indigenous communities.

While we recognize there is much to be done as we move toward truth and reconciliation, we renew our commitment to allyship with our First Nations communities.
