University leaders at the former Shingwauk residential school to talk about reconciliation

University leaders are at the former Shingwauk residential school to talk about reconciliation – and to learn more about that chapter in Canadian history.

Shingwauk was one of 130 schools operated by the governments and churches during a century of agreessive assimilation.

The meetings come more than a decade after Canada apologized to residential school survivors.
