"As a society …we have more work to do"
On December 9th 2013, the Ontario government apologized to institutional survivors with intellectual disabilities. As we listen to this message, these words stand out to us:
"As a society, we seek to learn from the mistakes of the past. And that process continues. I know, Mr. Speaker, that we have more work to do. And so we will protect the memory of all those who have suffered, help tell their stories and ensure that the lessons of this time are not lost."
