TL;DR Trudeau recently paid a visit to the Tŝilhqot’in Nation to make a public apology to "Acknowledge past mistakes" and also "renew the relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples." His visit was met with a great deal of criticism from Canadian public. Scroll down for what some Canadians had to say about this. 

Trudeau had a plan for this trip, though. And paid a visit to the members of the Tŝilhqot’in Nation in the unspoiled and prestine Nemiah Valley in British Columbia.

According to the official document by the Canadian government the purpose of this visit to the Tŝilhqot’in Nation was to  "Acknowledge past mistakes" and also "renew the relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples."

Trudeau also delivered a message of exoneration to six Tŝilhqot’in chiefs.



Although on the surface this appears to be a step in the right direction towards improving Canada's relationship with Indigenous peoples, many people reacted strongly to Trudeau's post by showing a great deal of dis-trust and skepticism regarding his true motivations behind this apology.

One statement repeatedly came up several times: Trudeau is apologizing for something that happened before Canada was a nation - again.

While some are reminding Trudeau that there are indigenous communities everywhere in Canada that desperately need help, too.

Some people point out a possible shady ulterior motive.

While some, but few, people actually are being positive and applauded the PM for his efforts.
