Thank you for everyone who participated in the Saskatchewan National Event!

Amid the statments gathered, the ceremonies and the tearful reunions, the forward momentum toward reconciliation continued at the Saskatchewan National Event. Tasked with witnessing and bringing what they learn back to their respective spheres of influence, five new Honourary Witnesses were named over the course of the four-day Event. Former federal MPand actress Tina Keeper and former Prime Minister Joe Clark joined Sheila Fraser, Mayor Jim Scarrow and Sir Sidney Mead of New Zealand as Honourary Witnesses.

The next National Event will be held in Québec in the spring of 2013.
