March 30, 2015, ‘Reconciliation is not a new opportunity to convince aboriginal people to ‘get over it’ and become like ‘everyone else’ … that’s what residential schools were all about and look how that went.’– Justice Murray Sinclair

This year old op-ed authored by Justice Murray Sinclair, Chair of Truth & Reconciliation Commission – Canada, is a realistic and honest opinion on reconciliation within the context of truth and reconciliation commissions. Justice Sinclair’s insights are applicable to many more truth and reconciliation commissions in addition to that of Canada because truth & reconciliation commissions usually, ultimately only deliver the minimum required to pacify victim population, the extent of culpability limited by other national-regional interests, including security, financial interests, commerce, etc.
