Word on the Street (Toronto): From Where I Stand with Jody Wilson-Raybould
From Where I Stand is a timely, forthright, and optimistic book for all Canadians. Drawn from speeches made over a ten-year period, Jody Wilson-Raybould’s inspiring prose outlines the actions that must be taken – by governments, Indigenous Nations, and ordinary Canadians – to achieve true reconciliation in this country. The good news is that Indigenous Nations already have the solutions. Now it is time to act and build a shared future based on the foundations of trust, cooperation, good governance, and recognition. Removing the barriers that are keeping these solutions from being put into effect will not only empower Indigenous Peoples – it will enrich all Canadians and make Canada stronger.
Jody Wilson-Raybould is a lawyer, advocate, and a proud Indigenous Canadian. She was Regional Chief of the Assembly of First Nations for British Columbia from 2009 to 2015 and was elected as Member of Parliament for Vancouver Granville in 2015. She was appointed the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, making her the first Indigenous person to serve in this portfolio.
