“We cannot deem our role in the fostering of a civil society a success unless we become demonstrably and with commitment the best place we can possibly be for the Aboriginal people of this province and this country. None of the rest of it matters—at this point in our nation’s history—if we do not achieve this.”
– Peter Stoicheff, President of the University of Saskatchewan
