Let's hope this progress is initiated and respected. An end to Cultural Genocide, broken Treaties, ignorance and incorrect #history .

Many great directions laid forth here...especially preserving (rescuing) Indigenous Languages - which in turn preserves the Culture. Teaching REAL history (correcting centuries old errors & omissions).
The amendments to the Oath o' Citizenship should be mandatory for all Canadians (not just "new ones", many of whom already have a better understanding o' the Rights of Aboriginal Peoples) - and DOUBLY mandatory for any Politician to be sworn into office!
