MICHAEL DAVIS GIVES EXPERT OPINION ON GROUNDBREAKING APOLOGY
27 OCTOBER 2011
Partner, Managing Director, Michael Davis provides his expertise in National Post article 'University’s residential school apology raises eyebrows'.
The University of Manitoba has announced that it will apologize on Thursday for what it says its role in the Indian residential school system. The University is not directly responsible for the ill-treatment of aboriginal children, but will take responsibility for having educated the clergy, teachers and politicians who were involved.
Davis provides his opinions on this groundbreaking story: “This is kind of odd — it’s really quite curious,” said Michael Davis, a partner at Reputations, a Vancouver-based reputation management consulting firm. “Do they then apologize for all the things they did or didn’t do when it comes to training people back in the day? … What about racism, sexism, or homophobia? Do they apologize for not leading on all of those other issues? Because that’s really what they seem to be talking about here.”
