In the following interview, Justice Murray Sinclair speaks about his role as Chair and Head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) and what the history of the residential schools means not only to Aboriginal peoples but also for Canada. One of the important tasks of the TRC, he notes, is to provide a space for survivors to feel that they are being listened to in a serious way and that their stories are recorded so that future generations can understand the tragic events surrounding the residential schools system in Canada. Another is to assist the public in understanding the “implications” of the residential schools for the “the relationship that exist between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples”.
