THE DOUGLAS-COLDWELL FOUNDATION TO SUPPORT THE NATIONAL YOUTH RECONCILIATION CONFERENCE

OTTAWA - The Douglas-Coldwell Foundation is proud to announce that the Canadian Roots Exchange has been awarded a grant to support the 5th Annual National Youth Reconciliation Conference, being held from March 27th to 29th in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

This year, the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation is awarding $1,000 dollars to the Annual National Youth Reconciliation Conference.

“The Foundation is proud to support the CRE National Youth Reconciliation Conference, stated DCF President Karl Bélanger. Their missionto build bridges between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in Canada is inspiring in many ways.”

Since 2013, Canadian Roots Exchange’s conferences have united over 600 Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth from all provinces and territories through interactive youth-led dialogues to develop a national network of youth leadership to promote reconciliation between all Canadians.

The Canadian Roots Exchange was founded in 2009 by a group of youth who believed that to realize reconciliation in Canada, it would need an education and dialogue between youth to foster a wide understanding of Canada's rich indigeneity.

The Canadian Roots Exchange believe in a Canada where youth stand in solidarity to promote respect, understanding and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. It is built on the hope that a new generation of leaders can redefine and strengthen relationships between Canada's peoples.

In the past decade, the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation has provided more than $300,000 in financial aid to different ventures. Established in 1971, the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation is a registered charity.

Annual Update from the President - 2015

As President of the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation, I’m writing to offer my sincere thanks for your support of the Foundation in 2014.

Early in Vincent Lam’s fine biography of Tommy Douglas we hear the story of a young Tommy gathered with some friends on a Winnipeg rooftop watching the events of the General Strike of 1919 unfold before them. They watched as hired thugs with baseball bats and revolvers charged into the midst of what had been a peaceful protest, leaving one man dead and the strike finished. It was a powerful moment for young Tommy, one that would stay with him throughout a life spent striving to build a fairer more equitable society.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

(The Sun - Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, Winnipeg & Calgary)

Dear sirs,

Your editorial of February 28, 2011 reveals new information, courtesy of the secret RCMP file, about the past and opinions of Tommy Douglas. In fact, had the Sun done its own research with any due diligence, it would have discovered that there was nothing new or revelatory in those files. (I suggest your readers explore the three fine biographies of Douglas that are available).
