In the Globe and Mail, Universities must address residential school legacy, Justice Sinclair says:

“Part of the misunderstanding that we see so prevalent in Canadian society is young adults, and adults in positions of leadership, constantly demonstrate a total lack of understanding and misunderstanding about who aboriginal people are … and what non-aboriginal society has contributed and done to aboriginal people that has caused the situation to be what it is in aboriginal Canada,” Justice Sinclair said in an interview this week.
