    1. @K D He also said it was a horrible experience and everyone should learn from it. Meanwhile the reserves continue to drink sewer water while Trudeau makes his friends into billionaires.

  1. (0:19) The conclusions of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report are opinions based on facts Evan, not facts unto themselves. Therefore, it is not possible for Erin O’Toole or anyone else to factually contradict that report or its authors. Whoever wrote that statement should learn the difference.

    1. It would seem to me that the facts of the report are being violated, not the opinions of the report. You said it yourself, the report contains both facts and opinion, and it was made clear that what OToole said contradicts the facts not the opinions per se.

    1. @Blue13 for Trudeau, the king of inclusivity and acceptance, for him to show what he did in his past says a lot about his core beliefs. Trudeau is full of s**t

    2. ​@Genesis RC & FPV I bet you really care about racial injustice, definitely. You only vote for the NDP and not the liberals or conservatives because they are both trash, right?

      you only care because of his party, you would not be saying this if it was a conservative who did it (oh wait, conservatives actually do WORSE).

    3. @colton421 Moron, absolutely no one said it was ok for Trudeau to do Blackface. He apologized profusely BTW, while this clown O’Toole just backtracked his statement.

    1. No ruling party should have more than 40 % of the gov.. let them deal with lesser parties… and squirm a little in the objectives they see as needed.

      Seems to be the norm.. make them work effectively with it..

  2. Can someone explain the use if the the word survivor. I went through the same system but I don’t claim to be a survivor…

    1. 289pinto, 25% to 75% of the children who went to residential schools died while they were there. You would be a survivor if you actually went there and came out alive.

    1. and why the PC’s wont win the next election. Does it come naturally or do the conservatives have to practice being this stupid?

    2. @Sean Mahoney with blackface trudeau, you don’t get to call anyone stupid. now take a sip from your drink box water bottle.

    1. He said the schools were for education. He was trying to defend Ryerson. In fact, the schools were set up to eradicate indigenous culture. Does that help?

    2. @Sean Mahoney did he not mention that “it turned into a horrible program” which leads me to belive he just doesn’t know too much about the topic or doesn’t fully understand what it was actually supposed to do.

  3. O’toole needs to have blackface tell his female party members to be quiet get his picture taken with a few criminals tell everyone he is a feminist apologize for everything some one else has done legalize drugs and spend the country into debt no one can ever pay for screw over veterans and then maybe Ontario will vote for him.
