I urge all in Canada to call in; before calling in, if you haven't read it,
I urge all to go to Treaty7.org and read Roland Chrisjohn's "The Circle
Game" to be well prepared. From the line-up indicated, this should be
another whitewash or perhaps "Applewash".

"I am aware that many object to the severity of my language;
but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth,
and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not
wish to think, or speak, or write with moderation. No! No!
Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm;
tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the
ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from
the fire into which it has fallen; but urge me not to use
moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest--I
will not equivocate--I will not excuse. I will not retreat a single
inch--and I will be heard."
(William Lloyd Garrison, Abolitionist, on Slavery, 1831)

Subject: On "CONTACT" - this Thursday-Residential Schools: Moving Beyond
To all "Contact" viewers and listeners.
For the next two weeks "Contact", APTN's National Live Call-In show, will be
focusing on a special event here at APTN.
Our network will be broadcasting two one-hour specials. It's a joint
production between APTN, CBC Newsworld and Vision TV. The specials focus on
the history and aftermath of the Canadian Governments "Residential School
System". They also look at what is being done and what needs to be done to
address the damage that "system" inflicted.
The specials will be broadcast immediately before "Contact's" regular
timeslot. We will then open our phone lines for people who want to talk
about what they have seen or for those who want to talk about the issue in
general, ie. How the residential school system has affected your life. What
needs to be done for healing to take place? What should Canada do about
residential school lawsuits?
Joining us in our studio will be Phil Fontaine, former National Chief.
I hope you'll take time to join us.
