During the CANACE truth & reconciliation rally on Sunday February 27, Gary McHale had a long, respectful conversation with Six Nations Elder Jan Longboat. Unfortunately the two leaders were surrounded by radicals who insisted on interrupting repeatedly, but ultimately the respectful dialogue continued until the two came to an agreement to separate the 2 sides.
The plan was simple. McHale would take the CANACE crew and residents South down Argyle Street, and Longboat would lead her people north to DCE.
Unfortunately, the radicals had no respect for Longboat and chose instead to follow and harass the CANACE crowd.
Nonetheless, a precedent was set this day for peaceful and respectful dialogue between the 2 sides.
