More Than 160 Additional Indigenous Graves Have Been Found In Canada

The Penelakut Tribe says more than 160 undocumented and unmarked graves have been found on the site of the former Kuper Island Indian Industrial School.

"I recognize these findings only deepen the pain that families, survivors and all Indigenous peoples and communities are already feeling as they reaffirm truth that they have long known," Trudeau said during a news conference Tuesday in Ottawa.

The Penelakut Tribe have issued a letter saying the graves were found on the grounds of the former residential school on what is now known as Penelakut Island between Vancouver Island and mainland B.C., about 78 miles (126 kilometers) southwest of Vancouver.

"We understand that many of our brothers and sisters from our neighboring communities attended the Kuper Island Industrial School," said the letter from Chief Joan Brown. "We also recognize with a tremendous amount of grief and loss, that too many did not return home."

The Kuper Island Indian Industrial School was operated by the Roman Catholic Church from 1890 until 1969, when the federal government took it over. The school was closed in 1975 and the building was demolished in the 1980s.

Trudeau said the federal government will work with Indigenous people to fight discrimination and systemic racism.

Close to 1,000 unmarked graves have been discovered at former residential school sites in British Columbia and Saskatchewan over the last several months.

Having Trudeau in charge is like having the fox guard the henhouse, he is sweeping this under the rug.

MM just flings mud at the wall to see if it will stick. That's why he likes to repeat the same misinformation time after time. He has an agenda and that agenda is if he doesn't like someone or something he'll say something negative about them. Whether that something is true or not, is, quite frankly,  a side issue to him.
