Theo Fleury Delivers Healing Message At Truth And Reconciliation Event

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada is holding a two-day program in Lethbridge, offering an opportunity for residential school survivors to share experiences.

 

The guest speaker on Wednesday morning was former NHL player Theoren Fleury, who came through his own experience of sexual abuse and underscores the need for victims to have a safe place to share their stories.

 

Fleury delivered a message of hope and healing to the crowd. He says "my story isn't any different than anybody else's, I'm just at a point in my life where I've gotten rid of the shame attached to it and I'm totally comfortable speaking about my experience, and realizing that it was never my fault and the shame that I've been carying around was not mine to bear."

 

The program will continue at the Lethbridge Lodge on Thursday with more public and private sharing opportunities.
