  1. Please don’t forget about NWT. My Grandfather was taken in the 1945-55 from Phedze Ke, NWT. He never came back home. Does Charles Camsell Hospital look familiar? Why always leave out the Dene from the North out.

  2. Excellent reporting on this issue. Woliwon for those involved to bring this message forward. Woliwon Gerald McIvor for telling your story and bringing the truth to the table.
