Bishop Stephens writes:  We ask all Canadians to reacquaint themselves with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Final Report and Calls to Action–upholding the heavy lifting already done by the survivors, intergenerational survivors, and the TRC. In addition, to show your solidarity, we encourage you to wear an orange shirt and start conversations with your neighbours about why you are doing so.
