1.6. Reconciliation is Everyone's Fight ft. Max FineDay
Canada's Young Leaders
Max FineDay, Executive Director of the Canadian Roots Exchange, joins us to discuss some of the amazing progress we’ve made in reconciling the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada, as well as the lengths we have yet to go. Max’s organization works to build and strengthen relationships between communities across Canada, something he argues is absolutely vital if we are to move forward as a country. Max explains how Canadians cannot simply sit back and wait for our federal, provincial and municipal governments to do all the heavy lifting for us - it is everyone’s responsibility to learn, to listen, and to seek to understand our roles in righting the wrongs of the past. http://canadianroots.ca/ www.upfordnetwork.com
