Canadian First Nation chiefs ask for reckoning after 751 unmarked graves discovered

by News Update

As many as 751 unmarked graves, some of which are believed to be of First Nation children, were discovered in Canada’s Saskatchewan province just weeks after a similar discovery in British Columbia, prompting a fresh reckoning over the country’s colonial past.

The graves were found on the site of the Roman Catholic Marieval Indian residential school, and Chief Cadmus Delorme of the Cowessess First Nation has asked for an apology from the pope and the church.

From the 19th century, more than 150,000 First Nations children were forced to attend state-funded Christian schools as part of a programme to assimilate them into Canadian society, many were beaten and verbally abused, and thousands died from disease, neglect and suicide

It goes further then that 1830 to 1880s

It was a bad idea for government to force indigenous children to go to residential schools in a forced assimilation program. This is the danger of government being able to force anyone to do things.

Cindy Blackstock of the First Nations said the Trudeau Government needs to learn from history.

Canada has committed genocide and yet had the audacity to accuse China when the yhghur people are fighting back the Western media of the lies provoked by the West news media. Funny how UK made absolute no noise on this dreadful matter.

reprehensible

No words will ever be acceptable for what has gone on here and if it happened here it will have happened in other countries

Are you guys even sober enough to realize and remember what's going on

Canada, what a joke! Double standards and hypocrisy!
Blaming China for genocide in Xinjiang with 0 hard evidence and 0 photo with any dead body. Meanwhile, when Canada got called out by UN human rights council about its own genocide of Indigenous peoples, with hundreds of dead bodies of children found almost monthly recently in Canada. Justin Trudeau reacted angrily to calls for an investigation. He thought it should be all ok now since Canada government kind of said sorry about the genocide already.
Justin and Canada government, what a joke!

Ask me about murders covered up WHICH IS PROBABLY ONE HUGE REASON I WAS STOPPED FROM WORKING ON MISSING PERSONS 12 YEARS AGO

Ian Brown June 25, 2021 - 4:38 AM

You know the indigenous people themselves were murdering and enslaving each other long before the Europeans showed up right?
