      WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT THE RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL COMPENSATION
      PACKAGE?
      Friday December 2, 2005
      LIVE @ 7:30 pm eastern 4:30 pm pacific
      Aboriginal Peoples TV Network

      Ask anyone who went to Residential School and most will agree; no amount of
      money can compensate them for the abuses they suffered, or the culture and
      language they lost.

      But on November 23, 2005 Ottawa announced a $2-billion compensation package.
      Details of the proposal include a "common experience payment" of $10,000 for
      each person who attended a residential school, plus $3,000 for each year
      they attended. As many as 86,000 people are eligible for compensation.
      Survivors 65 and older can soon apply for an $8000 advance payment.

      There will also be commemorative projects, more funding for the Aboriginal
      Healing Foundation and a "Truth & Reconciliation" process - where survivors
      and their families can share their experiences with the public.

      Join Madeleine Allakariallak and her guest National Chief Phil Fontaine from
      the Assembly of First Nations, as we discuss compensation for residential
      schools survivors.

      Call in live this Friday December 2nd at 7:30 pm eastern on CONTACT.
      (Outside Canada can catch it live on-line at aptn.ca/news.)
