In the midst of Canada 150 celebrations, Max FineDay is concerned with what lies ahead.
“What’s there to celebrate? It isn’t the oppression, all the broken promises to Indigenous people,” said the Toronto resident and member of the Sweetgrass First Nations in Saskatchewan. “For me what’s more important is the next 150 years and how we bring diverse communities together.”
He and other Toronto youth are addressing that need through a new dialogue series called All My Relations, which aims to add young voices to the discussions on issues of solidarity and reconciliation.
