Discovery brings sadness

“The discovery of the remains of 215 children at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School struck me with a profound sense of shock, sadness and shame,” said GSU general secretary Hugh Wagner. “This is a horrific reminder of the genocide against First Nations and Indigenous peoples led and coordinated by the Canadian state.”

“Canada has so much to answer for and the calls to action by First Nations leaders must be heeded,” Wagner said.
