Reflection in the Windows of the ROM

In learning from one's mistakes, it is crucial to reflect on the past and analysis the events that took place. In September of 2016, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a speech to the United Nations General Assembly about the ways in which Canada is going to change the world in the years to come. In strengthening his argument, he mentions the mistakes that the Canadian government has made in the past, saying: "... we have had many failures, from the internment of Ukrainian, Japanese and Italian Canadians during the World Wars; to our turning away boats of Jewish and Punjabi refugees; to the shamefully continuing marginalization of Indigenous Peoples." He understands that reflecting on this mistakes and making an effort to be better going forward is the only way to reconcile what happened. We have the great ability to learn from the past, make better decisions in the present and create a better future.
