CBC Vancouver is launching a new Indigenous column Reconcile This on Wednesday, September 27.

Reconcile This will air at 7:50 a.m. every second Wednesday during The Early Edition on CBC Radio One.


The stories will be available online through CBC News British Columbia, CBC News Indigenous, and will also air across the province on CBC Radio One's morning shows: Daybreak Kamloops, Daybreak North, Daybreak South, and On The Island.

Columnist Angela Sterritt will tackle Indigenous affairs and take listeners through communities as they face struggles, confront inequality and build resilience.

During the first segment, Sterritt will explore Indigenous relationships with B.C.'s education system and follow a story where derogatory terms were included in educational materials used in secondary school classrooms.

CBC incorporates a wide range of programming that informs, enlightens and entertains. Part of our mandate is to contribute to our shared national consciousness and identity, to reflect the multicultural and multiracial nature of Canada, and to showcase Canada and its regions to national and regional audiences, while serving the special needs of those regions. CBC is committed to covering the latest news, current affairs, and personal stories from Indigenous communities across the country.
