The Council of Canadians South Niagara chapter participated in a Blanket Exercise on Parliament Hill this past Friday (June 2).
South Niagara chapter activist Fiona McMurran took part in the event.
The KAIROS promotion for this on Facebook highlighted, "Join us for the largest Blanket Exercise ever! Kitchi means 'really big' in Anishinaabemowin. The Blanket Exercise is an experiential way to build understanding of our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. The event will mark the 2nd Anniversary of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action and the 20th anniversary of the KAIROS Blanket Exercise. It will also provide a perspective on Canada 150 that is different from that of many of the events taking place across the country."
