After Forced Apologies Driven by Hard Evidence, the only thing left is a Demonstration of Sincere Love and Acceptance.

The churches in Canada started apologizing several years ago in 1986 for their part in how they treated Canada's aboriginal children in the residential schools. The RCMP (Canada's national police force) did likewise back in 2004. The government of Canada in 2008. Yesterday the RCMP released its report of its involvement. The story is not pretty.

But when all this is not doing the job, what are the alternatives? There are only two: The first is to say, "nothing will satisfy these people" and then get on with your own life, and your own problems. The second is to do all in one's power to demonstrate sincere love towards our Aboriginal people. When apologies are 'forced' out of desperation or stem from obvious evidence of one's wrong-doing made public, they don't seem to accomplish what is hoped for.

It is time for the Canadian populace to stop "tolerating" and start demonstrating true love and acceptance to those whose land we and our children have the privilege of living on and profiting from.

At SCA International we are building bridges and more importantly, sincere relationships between ourselves and our Aboriginal brothers and sisters, and especially children.
