Trudeau says National Indigenous Peoples Day is a chance to discover ‘new ways of thinking’

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke at a National Indigenous Peoples Day community celebration on Tuesday in the Ottawa area, saying the day was a chance to discover "new cultures, new dances, new songs, new foods, new ways of thinking, new ways of being." He said the country has a responsibility to "push ourselves, to challenge ourselves" and be a model for neighbouring countries and those around the world who "need to figure out how to reconcile their pasts" and "live together in their present and future."
