Manage episode 305748916 series 2830610
Canadians need to work with Indigenous communities right now for real change, say two Edmontonians whose experience with Indigenous peoples spans decades and industries.
Malcolm Bruce is the CEO of Edmonton Global, the economic development organization for the capital city's metro region. Shawna Bruce is a self-employed communications consultant whose career took her to executive positions with the chemical giant Dow. Both have had leadership roles in the Canadian Armed Forces.
"This is a tragedy of so many levels. There's no light here. But if it's a catalyst for real change and reconciliation, then let's keep that conversation going," Shawna tells Jessica and George.
Malcolm adds: "We all need to be at the table to make this happen. We have to find bridges, we have to find ways to work together, and we have to find creative solutions we can all live with."
