TORONTO — It has been six years since the Truth and Reconciliation Commission put together 94 calls to action, and Indigenous people say not enough of them have been implemented and it’s time to pick up the pace.
With the current implementation rate, it will take until at least 2062 to complete all 94 calls to action put forth by the Commission. According to a 2020 status update on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action conducted by Yellowhead Institute, nine actions had been completed as of 2019, but that dropped down to eight in 2020.
“There hasn’t been an implementation plan or tool that’s been put in place. I think that if we had an oversight body of some kind, led by Indigenous people we might start to see differences,” Sheila North, former MKO Grand Chief, told CTV’s Your Morning on Friday.
