About bloody time!

Canada is following the example of South Africa and will strike a Truth and Reconciliation commission to bring light and air to the terrible treatment of Native Canadian children in residential schools, which were mostly run by churches. They were meant to bring British culture and education, not to mention salvation, to the children but they ended up oppressing and abusing them.

Judge LaForme has been selected to lead the commission.

As noted before, the schools did not even take precautions to prevent tuberculosis from spreading between the children.
