[Milton McKay], who works for the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations in the treaty governance office, says more public education is needed to help everyone understand land development and colonization experiences in Canada. "The fact that we are still alive today, that we exist in this world, is a massive testimony to the strength and resilience of our people," he says, noting that aboriginal youths also need to hear more stories of what "life was really like" before and during colonization.On April 23, the Saskatoon, Sask., chapter of Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA) chose to highlight the connection of faith and business in the lives of two of their retired members: Ross Borne, a former insurance broker, and Wes Heinrichs, former managing partner of Caswell's men's clothing store. They were honoured for their integrity and community involvement, both in church and civic affairs.
