Jody Wilson-Raybould

Jody Wilson-Raybould outlines the actions that she believes must be taken – by governments, Indigenous Nations, and ordinary Canadians – to achieve true reconciliation in this country.  

 
In this powerful book, drawn from Wilson-Raybould’s speeches and other writings, she urges us all – governments, Indigenous Nations, everyone – to build upon the momentum already gained in the reconciliation process or risk hard-won progress being lost. The choice she presents is stark: support Indigenous-led initiatives for Nation rebuilding or revert to governments just managing “the problem.” Frank and impassioned, she also argues that true reconciliation will never occur so long as governments deny Indigenous Peoples their rights and the Indian Act continues to exist.
