Photos: Canoes paddle into False Creek to launch Reconciliation Week
Paddlers in dozens of canoes travelled from Vanier Park to Science World today (September 17) as Reconciliation Week launched in Vancouver.
Participants in the event included Assembly of First Nations national chief Shawn Atleo, Truth and Reconciliation Commission chair Murray Sinclair, and members of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
Reconciliation Week is being held in conjunction with the TRC's national event at the PNE this week. A Walk for Reconciliation will take place in downtown Vancouver on Sunday, September 22.
