Marc Kruse led a talk on Truth and Reconciliation Call to Action #45 can help re-establish a nation to nation relationship between Indigenous peoples and the crown. Kruse explained how the treaty of Niagara led to the formation of Canada, ending with an argument why this history should be part of our civics education.
