On Vacation Again!
We're off on our final vacation of the year! We'll be visiting Richard's family on the coast and my family in the States, camping in between. Yay! It's a hectic schedule, but well worth it. We're also getting together with a few of Richard's Truther associates here in Canada.
I'm not taking my laptop on this trip - I think the Chinese characters on it might freak out Customs - so my posting and visiting will be sporadic if I get the chance at all. I'll miss y'all, but I'll have plenty of time to catch up during the rest of the summer!
I'm working to arrange a speaking engagement in Edmonton for this fellow. I highly recommend that all Canadians watch his 2006 documentary Unrepentent, available on Google Video. It's very disturbing, but if even half the allegations are true, the tribunals that will soon be investigating residential school abuses have their work cut out for them. I hope that the surviving victims will finally have recognition, healing, and justice. It's up to all of us to acknowledge what they experienced.
