On Sunday, September 24 more than 70 people from the Burnaby Schools community proudly participated in the Walk for Reconciliation. It was likely the largest reconciliation event in Canadian history, where indigenous and non-indigenous peoples walked together in unity across the Georgia viaduct to Strathcona Park. At the closing ceremony, grade 9 Burnaby North student Hannah Curr represented BC’s indigenous youth as a participant in a blanket ritual.
