Support for Healing

Re Presbyterian Church Did Not Seek Refund Under Terms of Settlement Agreement, July/August

While the United Church ac-knowledges a shortfall in their settle-ment, they go on to say “it is our under-standing that if the $450,000 had been contributed by the United Church it would  only reduce the government contribution by the same amount. The survivors would not have received any additional compensation.”

In defence of their support for reconciliation, the UCC website goes on to say, in part, that,  “over the past 12 years, the United Church has con-tributed $1 million annually toward healing and reconciliation initiatives.”
