By Richard Long,
Our team joined hundreds of others on the front lawn of Parliament Hill this afternoon to watch the official apology by PM Stephen Harper to the former students of the Residential Schools. Thousands of survivors watched in community centres and church buildings across the nation.
This was a well crafted apology and delivered with full sincerity, as the various native leaders attested to afterwords in their remarks. We have been praying and will continue to pray that the anointing on these words from the Holy Spirit, will truly mend hearts and inaugerate a new day in Canada’s relationship with its First Peoples.
You can watch a video of the full apology here.
Let us continue to pray for healing momentum that would touch every heart and life that needs to be mended and restored.
You can still sign our online apology that stands in agreement with the government.
