  1. Jacques Rouillard, professor emeritus in the Department of history at the Université de Montréal, has published an article in the Dorchester Review, titled “In Kamloops, Not One Body Has Been Found.”Jan 17, 2022.

    1. Don’t forget she gets $300k a year by doing almost nothing and gets a house with a budget for renovation.

    2. @Special Levo When insurers incentivize discrimination in law school curriculum, (look it up) – the bar is set even lower, I think.

  2. So I guess they did hear that the Graves they thought they found were not Graves at all..?

    1. @NF FI They aren’t “unmarked graves”. They aren’t graves at all. Do some research.

    2. @Johanna Holmgren Lots of folks have done the research. I think you’re misinformed (and misinforming).

    3. @Johanna Holmgren I think you’ve been misinformed (and are misinforming)…yes, I’ve done some research (as have many others).

  3. Yes this is cruel but im saying it how many of those kids actually had a future versus becoming druggies alcoholics. Think churches did kids a favor.

    1. Perpetuating stereotypes instead of realizing the damage done is typical settler thinking

    2. @Young Righteous “typical settler thinking” that says everything about you, learn to think for yourself.

    3. @Young Righteous The reality is, the children were often taken from abusive homes.
      Their lives were improved.

    1. @Drizzt I think you may be misinformed (and are misinforming others) – consider doing some more in depth research?

  4. so why no justice still? why no trials? why not disband the organizations responsible? why change the names of the places affected so to hide the shame and crime?

  5. Celebrating another year of government hand outs. Wonder how much their grief will cost next time, and the next and the next?

    1. @NF FI Your words are your own not mine. If that’s the conclusion you want to draw then that’s on you.

    2. @NF FI Aside from yourself there seems to be nobody else making that assumption or accusation. So I am going to go with your on your own here and have some of your own personal issues to work out? I mean if we are going to just start assuming things.

  6. I don’t know what they’re on about. There were zero bodies discovered. Has anyone bothered to tell them?

  7. Whatever
    Been a year and still never been dug up to find out what happened. But they sure don’t mind the free money coming in.
