What I’m Doing with the National Citizens Inquiry
Spoiler alert: I’m the new spokesperson!
I’m aiming to set a record today for fastest blog written to date.
It’s a personal goal made necessary by the constraints of time and new commitments.
Because I’ve just recently agreed to the great honour of being spokesperson for the citizen-led and citizen-funded Canadian first, the National Citizens Inquiry.
Just like with the Freedom Convoy, Canada is taking the lead in an unprecedented action to make sense of and course correct from the Covid crisis of the past 3 years.
Mistakes were made.
People were hurt, and continue to be hurt…and worse.
But until we can unite as a people, until we can find and focus on our commonality, we will not be able to demand justice.
According to a recent poll, 3 out of 4 Canadians felt that the government’s C-19 response caused them harm.
The people’s stories need to be heard.
Experts that have been silenced need to be heard.
And the government isn’t going to hold itself to account.
We cannot move forward unless we hear and acknowledge the truth.
We have a great opportunity to come together as Canadians, with the kindness and compassion for which we are known.
We have the opportunity to listen to each other and to heal our divide.
And we have the opportunity to lead by example, demonstrating our dignity, strength and resilience to the world.
I’m leaving for Nova Scotia today, where the first public hearings are being held.

And please share.
Imagine every country negatively impacted by C-19 policies holding an inquiry led by its citizens.
And then go make that happen!
