Our guest this month was David McKillop

We were honoured to be joined by Rideau Regional survivor David McKillop. David is the President of People First of Ontario and an accomplished musician and public speaker. He has been working tirelessly to close institutions across Canada. David shared his music and story with us. He encouraged us to “stand up for our rights” and tell our stories. His advice is important as we continue to work on our video.
