What do you do when your investigation takes an unexpected turn? Have you struggled with how to proceed when the normal steps don’t seem to apply? In this advanced course, we tackle the complexities that can complicate an otherwise traditional investigation. This course includes in-depth discussion of handling anonymous complaints, counter-complaints, complaints of reprisal, and more!

As we prepare for the party of the century (and a half), we must remember that not everyone who calls this land home feels that this is a milestone worth celebrating.

For many indigenous people, this anniversary overlooks their much longer relationship to the land. For others, it represents a celebration of the same colonization process that caused their ancestors unspeakable pain and which continues to impact them today.

In light of this, this Canada day, I will be thinking about what it means to be Canadian – the good, the bad and the ugly. I will reflect with sadness on the damage that the last 150 years has done to Canada’s indigenous communities and hope for what the next 150 years may bring.

Finally, I will reflect on the words of Justice Murray Sinclair:

“Reconciliation is not an aboriginal problem — it is a Canadian problem. It involves all of us.”
