Community unity shone bright at the Truth and Reconciliation Day ceremony held Friday September 29, 2023 in Downtown Welland.
“Supporters gathered in Market Square to acknowledge the harm done to Indigenous peoples through the existence of residential schools. Thanks to everyone who gathered to mark the occasion. Speakers at the event included Jennifer Dockstader, Executive Director of the Native Friendship Centre in Fort Erie, Mayor Campion of Welland and Vance Badawey our MP. Below are a few pictures I took of the proceedings.” ~Carol Harding, Canadian Federation of University Women -CFUW Welland & District
Let’s keep walking the path of facing our past with honesty and empathy.
