  1. Justin,

    All of the traumas endured by residential school survivors was happening in orphanages across the country to white children and it is from that pool of abused children that the oppressors were taken. I was one of the children sent to those orphanages and was offered a university level education by the roman catholic church, one of those churches responsible for this awful social aberration. This has been going on for thousands of years and is a well known means to subdue and control the people.

    If we are serious about reconciliation, this must be examined, the social aberrations identified and corrective measure taken as soon as possible to stop this from happening to not only native children but to all the children world wide.
