    1. They’ll never have peace they’ll be taught to cling to victimhood forever. It’s what the government wants.

    1. Are you serious? Talk about deflecting blame. It was the Canadian government who created and sanctioned Residential schools NOT the church. It was also the Canadian government who refused to ship the bodies home after a death saying it would “cost to much.” It was also the Canadian government who ignored complaints about abuses taking place. Interesting as well, Trudeau’s father was PM when these schools were still in operation and did nothing to fix the problems. Just a little history lesson for you.

    2. Prior to the church, There was never evil in humanity. I built a time machine and went back to check.

    3. They should not be digging out those bodies, we need international observers, this is an international crime scene

    1. True, but the Canadian government has at least formally apologized for its role. The catholic church has refused to do so. All parties should be held to account for their role. Apologies are the least that can be done.

    2. @Kalen Trudeau still has not given indigenous communities clean drinking water. How sincere do you think his apology on this matter really is?

    3. @Kalen Talk is cheap. Nothing more than virtue signaling. The Parties and Institutions need to be held accountable

    1. There is not an oz of truth in your diatribe. Churches ran the schools and the government provided funding.

    2. They’re both at fault, Canadian government facilitated it, but it was the Catholic priests and nuns running the schools that did those kids dirty.

    3. @Tyrone Lewis The only truth from the past is this: Hunting and gathering economies were unviable in an era of industrialization, and so were it not for the educational and socialization efforts provided by the residential schools, aboriginal peoples would be even more marginalized.

    4. @G C I don’t pay much attention to alternate histories, because nobody really knows how things would turn out. For all we know aboriginal peoples could even be less marginalized today if there were no residential schools, due to circumstances you missed in your no residential school alternate history. Alternate history is fun to imagine, but doesn’t mean it would have happen that way.

    5. @Tyrone Lewis There was no alternative to RS. Of the 150,000 students most found a means to catch up to the Europeans.

  2. No political event or circumstance can be evaluated without the knowledge of The Vatican’s ( JESUIT) part in it. And no significant world situation exists in which The Vatican does not play an important explicit or implicit role.”

    ~Edmond Paris, the Vatican against Europe (Springfield, Missouri: Ozark Book Publisher, 1993), p. 308

  3. Does it not seem like the definition of racism, to cater to a idiology that claims that atheists burn in hell for all eternity?
    Yes or no?

  4. RE: Residential School in BC

    And this is just a question. I do not know if this was a mass gravesite or a lot of individual Gravesites.

    These are the facts as I am finding them.

    1) This school was built in 1898

    2) In 1918 -19 there was the Spanish Flu which hit the Indigenous Community hard

    3) This School had a fire and was rebuilt in 1923-24

    So my question is could these be Spanish flu deaths? They didnt have the medical or technical knowledge we have now and could have just done a mass burial of children and adults who succumbed to this!

    I am not taking away from the tragedy of the Residential Schools, how they operated and how they abused the children at all. We all know that went on and was cruel.

    The Catholic Church and it alone is to blame as to the abuse the children in their care suffered.

    The Only 2 reasons I can see for mass burial are 1) epidemic swept thru and children and adults died or 2) Genocide

    I am going to wait until everything is clear on this one before making a judgment.

  5. The Catholic Church is a joke as far as I am concerned! I would never admit to being Catholic!

  6. Why are we asking for apologies now? Where are the international observers? This is a crime scene, this is an active genocide just like the Serbs on the Bosnians.

  7. Hasn’t Trudeau apologized for all Canadians enough? Its not like apologies fix anything. And, apologizing for the actions of others is pretty stupid.
