Rickford On Residential School Ceremony

Shining light on an unfortunate past. Kenora MP Greg Rickford hosted a dedication ceremony on Wednesday to commemorate the legacy of Indian Residental Schools, which featured a stained glass window being installed in Center Block on Parliment Hill. Rickford says that it's a move forward for Aboriginal people who were affected by the residential schools. Rickford adds that it had some personal significance to him, considering he was part of negotiations and the signing of the Residential Schools Agreement.
