Re­quired read­ing

Canada's History - - THE PACKET -

Doug Cut­hand’s “Harsh Mea­sures” (Oc­to­ber-Novem­ber 2017), although well writ­ten, does not make for com­fort­able read­ing. Fur­ther de­tails of this ex­e­cu­tion at Fort Bat­tle­ford, Saskatchewan, in 1885 may pro­duce fur­ther dis­com­fort. As part of Canada’s rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, the truth of such ter­ri­ble mo­ments in the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Indige­nous and set­tler so­ci­ety must be ad­mit­ted and taught to the adults and chil­dren of our coun­try. I con­grat­u­late your mag­a­zine for fur­ther­ing rec­on­cil­i­a­tion by its cov­er­age of such ter­ri­ble mo­ments.
