An Ecumenical Letter to the Senate of Canada in Support of Bill C-262

2019, 3 pp
The letter reads, in part: "As representatives of an ecumenical community committed to the principles of reconciliation set forth by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), we write to express our hope that the Senate will support Bill C-262, The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act. The TRC has stated that the Declaration is the framework for reconciliation. As churches and ecumenical agencies, we are also responding to the TRC’s call to adopt and comply with the Declaration as the framework of reconciliation. Moreover, our membership has actively supported Bill C-262 at all stages of the legislative process. We ask all Senators to support Bill C-262, ensuring its passage through Committee and 3rd reading."
