With privilege comes the responsibility of reconciliationOct 21, 2015
First year law student Bobby Sangha reflects on the meaning of reconciliation for his fellow law students and others in the legal profession. Bobby was inspired to write about these challenges and possibilities after hearing Reconciliation Canada’s Chief Robert Joseph speak at his university.
He writes: “At the heart of [Chief Robert] Joseph’s lecture was not only a desire to speak of the problems of the past or contemporary issues, but a desire to inspire change for the future. He challenged every incoming law student with the task of finding his or her own way to build a better community, no matter how big or small.”
