On September 8, 2011, a breath of fresh air blew into the Congrégation de Notre-Dame Mother House.

All of us have probably seen enough of the images of the “Vancouver riots.” Amid the finger pointing, blaming and demonizing, there is some healing in the hundreds of volunteers who cleaned up the next day and in the messages on the Wall of Apology/Hope. More encouragingly, I believe, are the questions being raised.
