Where the Pavement Ends: Canada's Aboriginal Recovery Movement and the Urgent Need for Reconciliation is filled with inspiring stories gathered from journalist Marie Wadden's discussions with activists across Canada who are involved in the Aboriginal healing movement. But the book is also a passionate wake-up call aimed at all Canadians. Existing government policies, Wadden argues, perpetuate the problems that are tearing Aboriginal families and communities apart. We must make social healing in Aboriginal communities an immediate national priority. We must also demand public policy that guarantees First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples the right to live as full and equal citizens. In these ways, we can offer true support to these marginalized communities.
