Date and Time: Wed, September 23, 2020 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT

A brief look at what led Canadians to the needed work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) and personal insights on how colonialism affected both speakers’ family life. Concluding with a discussion of the TRC’s call to all Canadians to take part in healing and reconciliation, and support the recovery of Indigenous cultures and spiritual traditions.

Lori Ransom is a Reconciliation and Indigenous Justice Animator, Indigenous Ministries and Justice, with the United Church of Canada. She is a member of the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation (near Eganville, Ontario) who has lived off reserve all of her life

Rev. Bryan Ransom, retired United Church Minister, was an active member of the United Church Toronto Conference for many years and was elected President of Conference for 2015-2016. In his role as president, he attended Truth and Reconciliation Events as a witness and was active in Indigenous learning circles. He became impassioned with restoring Right Relations with Indigenous Peoples. His interest has led him to learn more about his personal Indigenous history as a member of the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation.
