I will try to meet this question, vast and boundless as it is vast and boundless the “Canadian land”, by turning to my Canadians brothers and sisters and especially to my brothers and sisters of the First Nations, asking: “Please, tell me about your life, about your thinking, and what I can do to let myself be reconciled with you”. Then, I will do my best to walk that way.

I also confidently dare to add: as Representative of the Holy Father in Canada, I know that Pope Francis “is with” the First Nations.
