"One of the things that I hope comes out of this destruction which is what I think you have to call it - is that out ofthat comes something better," said Ms. [Jane Brewin Moriey]. Asked why they did not resign immediately, she explained that June 1 was an estimate, "hopefully an overly cautious estimate, of how long it would take to get the new commissioners in place, and we're basically there until the new commissioners come in."Esther Wesley, co-ordinator for the Anglican Healing Fund, ointed out a fundamental probem with the TRC. In her travels to many native communities where people speak only their own languages such as Cree or Inuktitut, "they have absolutely no idea about TRC," she said. "That is where work needs to be done because they do not speak English, and TRC is not a translatable term."
