OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANamed after the former CCF/NDP cabinet minister/Saskatchewan premier Woodrow Lloyd, this annual lecture goes Wednesday, Jan. 21 at the University of Regina. Speaking will be Dr. Cindy Blackstock (pictured), who is the Executive Director of the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada. The topic of her talk is “Reconciliation: The Children’s Version”.

Through the university’s communications department, I received this synopsis of the talk:

There is a growing conversation about reconciliation in Canada and addressing contemporary inequalities and injustices facing First Nations children is a vital part of the conversation. This lecture by Cindy Blackstock will explain how children and young people are working with First Nations to achieve equity and uplift the country at the same time.

Again, the talk goes Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in Rm 106.1 of the Education Building. If you’d like some more information, the number to call is 306-337-3114.
