Re: Canada Discovers 751 unmarked graves at Residential School

There will be more to come for sure now that this inhumane practice has been unveiled. Being Canadian it is not easy to learn more and more about the atrocities committed on our own soil. I didn't hear anything about residential schools until about 15 years ago. Nothing of it was ever taught in history class and that is a shame in itself. As long as the natives were being looked after on reserves, all was good. Just continue to stand and sing God Save The Queen.
The church run schools funded by the government are both guilty as sin. I doubt that there will be a formal apology issued by the Vatican, that would be an admission of guilt that could become quite costly.

The investigating and digging for answers has quickly taken notice south of the border. There were similar types of set ups all across North America.

The burning of small churches won't solve a thing. Neither will the construction of massive cathedrals for the purpose of worship.
