    The final report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, Reclaiming Power and Place, is a massive, two-volume document.

The report spells out in detail, example after example, of just how this was carried out, especially but not only in the residential schools. However, there is a major basic weakness, going back all the way to its original charge.

    Ever since I was a teenager growing up in Cairo, Egypt, I dreamed of visiting many countries of the world … maybe even all of them! Over the past five decades, I've averaged about one new one a year, but there are far more than 50, so I still have quite a number to cover.

    June 11, 2019

    I was born a Muslim 75 years ago in Egypt and raised by a middle-class family. My mother practiced our faith more diligently than my father.

After the death of my father when I was just 15, however, I felt closer to God as I took on the new role of helping care for my mother and six younger siblings.
