On March 19th, over 300 students, representing Treaty 6, Treaty 7, Treaty 8, Metis, non-status and non-Aboriginal communities, from five schools across Alberta came together to collaborate, through the use of technology, in a Virtual Town Hall to discuss the youths’ vision for Reconciliation. From the rural communities of High Prairie and Fort McLeod to downtown Edmonton, we, the youth of Alberta, came together to exchange ideas, debate alternatives and ultimately create a document that represents our voice.. The Virtual Town Hall, called an “archetype of grassroots democracy” by Senator Grant Mitchell, was the culmination of over a month of online teamwork, 1500 hours of student collaboration and a passion by Alberta’s youth to engage in the dialogue.
