Canada Shames Itself Before World In Not Confronting It’s Genocidal Past

United Nations Experts Call On Canada, Holy See To Investigate Mass Grave At Residential Schools

Some White nun, in the name of “ripping the Indian out of the Indian,” oversees Indigenous children, ripped away from their families by the RCMP, praying to God in one of Canada’s residential schools. All sanctioned by more than a hundred years from one Canadian government after another. One can’t help but ask how many of the children in this photo ended up iburied in an unmarked grave on the school grounds.

United Nations (UN) human rights experts have urged Canadian authorities and the Catholic Church to conduct prompt and thorough investigations into the discovery of a mass grave containing the remains of over 200 children at a British Columbia ‘residential school’ for indigenous children forcibly taken from their homes.

Indigenous children in one of Canada’s residential schools, which ran up to the 1990s, forced to chalk lines on a black board while praising Jesus. Where in hell were we Canadians while this was still going on? Shame on us.

The Kamloops Indian Residential School, where the children’s remains were found, had been run by the Catholic Church between late 19th century and the late 1960s, when the federal government took over until its closure in the 1970s.

It was part of the indigenous residential school system which, between 1831 and 1996, hosted over 150,000 children in 130 schools, many run by the Catholic Church or the federal government.

The 2015 report of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission determined that Aboriginal children were subjected to abuse, malnutrition and rape, and that at least 4,000 died of disease, neglect, accidents or abuse while at these schools.

“We urge the authorities to conduct full-fledged investigations into the circumstances and responsibilities surrounding these deaths, including forensic examinations of the remains found, and to proceed to the identification and registration of the missing children,” said the UN experts. They further called on the Government “to undertake similar investigations in all other Indigenous residential schools in the country”, recalling the right of victims to know the full extent of the truth about the violations endured.

“The judiciary should conduct criminal investigations into all suspicious death and allegations of torture and sexual violence against children hosted in residential schools, and prosecute and sanction the perpetrators and concealers who may still be alive,” added the experts.

“Large scale human rights violations have been committed against children belonging to indigenous communities, it is inconceivable that Canada and the Holy See would leave such heinous crimes unaccounted for and without full redress.”

The experts called on the Government of Canada to fully implement the recommendations contained in the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of 2015. “For far too many years, victims and their families have been waiting for justice and remedy. Accountability, comprehensive truth, and full reparation must be urgently pursued,” they said.

The UN experts urged the Catholic Church “to provide full access to judicial authorities to the archives of the residential schools run by the institution, to conduct prompt and thorough internal and judicial investigations into these allegations, and to publicly disclose the result of those investigations”.

The experts have been in contact with Canada and the Holy See concerning the indigenous residential schools.

    For one thing, I think it’s time to stop funding two school systems.
    The Catholic church is one of the wealthiest institutions in the world. I see no reason for the people of Canada to be held fully responsible for reparations. Let the church take some responsibility for their deeds for once.
    The history of residential schools (single mothers’ schools in places like Ireland, pedophilia, etc.) is disgusting, genocidal and not ancient history. This nonsense went right up to the 1990’s.
    It took 350 years to pardon Galileo for being right. The church moves at glacial speed if at all.
    Europeans in general were astonishingly arrogant but that is nothing new in society. Conquerors everywhere always subjugated native populations. It was wrong then and it is wrong now and it was usually based on religion. Our god was better than their god. Nonsense. Humans are tribal creatures and always will be. Might makes right.
