June 2, 2015 – Statement from Louise Bradley, President and CEO of the Mental Health Commission of Canada on TRC’s findings and call to action

Ottawa, ON – “With the release of the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, all Canadians jointly take another meaningful step in the healing process.

The Mental Health Commission of Canada commends the important work of the commission and applauds the courage of those survivors who took the difficult step of telling their stories so publicly. It is only through contributions such as theirs that such a sad chapter of Canadian history can be properly told.

May the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada help to bring closure for living survivors and their families, and peace to those who have gone before.”
