The journey of reconciliation: local implications for settler Canadians
Jan 21 @ 7:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Lecture 1 of the Renison lecture series at the Waterloo Public Library (WPL)

Kelly Laurila, speaker

Tuesday, January 21, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm 
Waterloo Public Library, main branch

To register, visit the WPL Event Registration webpage. Registration will open on January 14. 

Since the release of the 2015 Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, many Settler Canadians are engaging in discussions of reconciliation. There is often, however, an angst of not knowing what to do, fear of saying or doing the wrong thing or feeling guilt or shame about the injustices done to Indigenous peoples, so that denial or avoidance may be chosen instead of engagement. Kelly Laurila, who is Indigenous Sáami and Settler, will share what she has learned about reconciliation and how one can find a place within this journey.

The WPL/Renison lecture series continues through April 2020. For full details, visit the lecture series webpage.

Think you know Stephen King? Maybe you’ve read Pet Cemetery or The Shining. Maybe you waded through The Stand or watched, helpless, as Under the Dome ground to a halt. Think you know Stephen King? Think again. In America’s Dark Theologian, author Doug Cowan explores the religious imagination of one of the premier masters of horror, taking you on a tour beyond the deadfall, back to the Overlook and, ultimately, face to face with the questions that terrify us all.

Water is emerging as an increasingly potent focus of political contestation in communities all around the globe. Wellington County, Ontario, is no exception even though – unlike many places where water is a issue of contention – most people in Wellington County have reliable access to as much safe, clean, affordable water as they need. In this presentation I will share findings of my research on how water activism has evolved in Wellington County and what is driving it, and engage those in attendance in a discussion of next steps and opportunities for involvement in the local water justice movement.
