The Secret Path - s031
It was an honour to rise in the House to commemorate Chanie Wenjack, a twelve-year-old Anishinaabe boy who died on October 23, 1966, while running away from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School in Kenora.
On that same day in 2016, Gord Downie and Jeff Lemire released the Secret Path, a multi media project that tells Chanie`s story through music and illustrations:https://secretpath.ca/#Home
Canadians from coast to coast to coast share the loss of the Wenjack family, and we thank you for sharing his story with the world. Meegwetch.
