  1. What does it take for the govt to say your worth it? Hahahaha this is delusional. It takes stopping this bigotry of low expectation.

    1. @Based Mod no, he didn’t. He just objectively said a factual statement. It’s not to say that liberals couldn’t one day understand. They’re capable. But right now, they don’t.

    2. @MrTheclevercat that’s up to everyone’s personal choice. Anyone, anywhere in this country, can better themselves and make something of their lives if they choose to do so and are steadfast when circumstances don’t go their way. It’s not “magic” but that is very much what lefty’s think. It’s hard work, physically, emotionally, mentally.

  2. They found a grave yard till forensic teams go in they found a graveyard that’s all we know

    1. @Timetraveler Not really…but I don’t think it’s just a coincidence that graveyards are being found around these specific institutions (for children). What are the odds that if we run a rader around a “non-residential” school, we will find a graveyard?

    2. @blattimus Not really…but I don’t think it’s just a coincidence that graveyards are being found around these specific institutions (for children). What are the odds that if we run a rader around a “non-residential” school, we will find a graveyard?

    1. That’s why my husband and I are immigrating to Italy. They are proud of their culture, not hate it. And yes, the Roman Empire was a machine. They took over half the world. Can I get reparations too…

    2. You got it right- we will keep hearing this for 60 years and every month there will be 2-5 found

  3. I don’t trust the Canadian government to investigate. That’s like the rcmp investigating themselves

    1. Worse, since Falsedeau has a long history now of being blatantly corrupt and lining the pockets of his friends

    2. you should check out the book by kevin Annett – He already reported on all this years ago and the RCMP was noted to have covered it up.

  4. …before we all just to the obvious conclusion let them investigate since there are hundreds of old cemeteries all over Canada that are now “unmarked”…. Sounds like this at one time was a cemetery with headstones…. just saying because we can’t feed the flames with speculation.

    1. Naw, its easier and more sensational to just say the are all indigenous, when they are not!
      Canadians do help indigenous, to the tune of billions every year!!

    2. @Joe Reid idk about billions, also they did get back stabbed by the gov, not to mention some elements of the deals weren’t even fulfilled

  5. This is so hard to realize omg my best friends I grew up with iam 64 went back home many my friends were gone

  6. There will be more. My great grandmother often tried to hide her heritage. It is really hard to trace ancestry for many due to unfair circumstances , especially if the children were adopted out. This is heartbreaking for the Aboriginal community.
