Reverend Tom Corston

At the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings held in Val d'Or, several of the survivors thanked members of the clergy for their presence in the audience. Both the Catholic and Anglican bishops, as well as a priest came to listen to the testimony on February 5th and 6th. Reverend Tom Corston is the Anglican bishop for Moosonee -- the diocese that includes Eeyou Istchee. He says it was important for him to be there.
