It matters to me because all Canadians deserve equal treatment under the law. The TRC reports are absolutely vital to the education of generations to come, both to combat ignorance and avoid such horrible acts in future. We all need to forge ahead into a new Canada with a more respectful understanding of citizenship where such racist atrocities and cultural genocides would be unthinkable and abhorrent.

It matters to me because to find peace in the future and the "now", you must make peace with the past.
