Marie Wilson

Truth and Reconciliation Commissioner Marie Wilson has spent a lot of time listening. In this 2013 picture (above), Wilson is in Hay River, NWT, listening to former residential school students.

On November 1, 2015, Wilson attended a re-dedication ceremony for Canadian poet and federal government bureaucrat  Duncan Campbell Scott, whose new plaque includes his role in the creation of Canada's residential schools.

On the topic of the re-dedication ceremony, Wilson had this to say:

“…the stories of our lives are not all written while we are on earth, that the stories of our lives indeed can be continuing and in some ways can become more important and more powerful after our departing.”
