A Tour of Four Cities

The tour seeks to bring awareness of the TRC to the general public and especially the people of the churches. The Anglican, United, and Presbyterian Churches, in partnership with the Assembly of First Nations, are organizing the tour. Other stops are Ottawa (March 2-3), Saskatoon (March 9), and Winnipeg (March 10). The General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, together with the Vancouver School of Theology, are sponsoring and hosting the Vancouver event.
