Open-Letter calling for the release of all relevant documents related to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission

Thomas Peace

Last week Adele Perry, a historian at the University of Manitoba, spearheaded an open-letter by historians in Canada calling on the Government of Canada to ensure the release of all records related to residential schools and the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The letter builds on similar letters and demonstrations by First Nations communities, librarians, archivists and museum workers. Over the weekend, it was circulated by e-mail and we have now uploaded it to in order to include additional names. Click the link if you would like to be included as a signatory.
