You are invited to join the Anglican Parish of Christ Church, 12116-102 Ave, for Philosopher Café on Sunday March 1, at 4 pm. We will view the Anglican Church of Canada’s film: The Doctrine of Discovery: Stolen Lands, Strong Hearts. It is a film about a devastating decision, made over 500 years ago, which continues to profoundly impact Indigenous and Settler people worldwide. Pope Alexander VI ruled that the lands being discovered by European explorers at the time was “empty” land and its millions of Indigenous inhabitants were “non-human.” The purpose of this film is to respond to the TRC Calls to Action by helping to provide education and insight into the racist foundations of many of our property and other laws still in existence to this day. Dr. Stephen Martin will lead us in our discussion.
