I grew up on the rumours. Kids that didn’t come home. Every so often infant bodies would be found buried around old “nuneries”.
But now the bodies have resurfaced. Is Canadian society actually ready to hold those within their religious affiliation responsible?
Alberta - we pay our property taxes for education (district) which is Catholic school (not secular). It is so emeshed. The voting base and politicians - religious. I don’t foresee real accountability or criminal charges.
Perhaps, 100 years from now some “pope” may offer a formal apology? (No living relatives and blowing dust off their record of real crime).
The Indian residential schools in Canada were predominately funded and operated by the Government of Canada and Roman Catholic, Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian and United churches.. To be clear. The Gov’t funded/paid those it contracted (religion). Canadian government was financially responsible for Indian residential schools
The one in Kamloops was Catholic.
Would the lowest standard for “love thy neighbor” be not to kill him?
