On March 27 - 30, the Truth and Reconciliation concludes its journey with its final national event here in Edmonton, held in the Shaw Conference Centre. However, the process of reconciling our history as Albertans is ongoing.
One example is the unveiling of a new mural at the Grandin LRT Station on March 21st as a response to the controversial one that has been in place since 1989. The new mural is a joint collaboration between First Nations Metis artist Aaron Paquette, and original mural artist, Sylvie Nadeau. They hope their collaboration serves as an inspiration for more openness, dialogue, and understanding regarding a dark chapter of our collective histories.
