I'm glad a picture of this was taken before they had a chance to remove it.

3 words that say everything... heart-wrenching.

A horrific part of history is only whispered about. I doubt it was the only one

My God, how those children must have suffered. :cry: Is it any wonder why so many died. Sick bastards that took part in this should be rotting in hell.

Well, that's finally a small step in the right direction...Catholic group gives 'formal commitment' to disclose all records from B.C. and Sask. residential schools

The thing that gets me is how close we are to anarchy. Most of the country is in shock the natives are angry. There will be people who stir the pot from all sides and this is going to produce more than two sides. This could get really bad really fast. There are militants on all sides. There will still be people who say so what. There will still be racist cops. There will still be misconduct. There will still be the perception of the natives getting everything handed to them. There will still be people being stopped for walking while native. And there will still be the fears when pulled over. One video could blow this powder keg sky high. I really hope I’m wrong. But with all the problems that have come out of the pandemic people have been on edge. It won’t take much to push a few over.

It's bad, but I don't think it's that bad.

I hope you’re right. I just remember the militant groups going around offering support, people and supplies to set up blockades after oka. I doubt that they have folded. Maybe they have gotten smarter. I’m out of that loop these days.

A militant uprising by any First Nations members now would be the worst thing that they could do. A lot has changed since 1990. I cannot see any court in North America picking a golf course over any Native group these days. Lets face it, the average white person in North America is fed up with rich elite assholes that hang out at country clubs sipping champagne and eating caviar. The wealthy these days are as popular as a pork chop in a Mosque. I think the real danger of an uprising is all the working stiffs (of all races) uprising against the very wealthy (of all races).

A few months ago (before Kamloops) I could see courts siding with oil companies over First Nations/ Native Americans when it came to placement of pipelines, but not now. This story is just getting started unfortunately. They have not even begun to look at the residential schools in the states yet. Every school that gets examined is probably going to result in a higher body count. The shame is growing exponentially. The whole world is watching now. As the world's disgust grows larger with each passing day, the North American powers that be are in no position to do anything that would appear as to take a position that is detrimental to the First Nation/ Native American cause. For the first time in hundreds of years the First Nations/Native Americans are in the catbird seat. They have a real chance to get everything they need and or want. Everyone is on their side now. If they aren't, they damn well better pretend to be. Anyone standing in their way would be committing political suicide.

Any Native group advocating for violence would be the worst thing that they could do now. With the whole world on their side, why risk losing that support? Why give some politicians the break that they are looking for? Cooler heads need to prevail.

The link is dead now, but I remember that at the Iroquois solidarity blockades of the railroad tracks in Ontario last year some of the blockers posted to Facebook reproaching their fellows for endangering civilians, possibly causing a train crash, or something like that. This wasn't just a text post, but an actual video.

At other blockades, I've read about how mining opponents in the Val D'Or area in Quebec make a point of not stopping your average Jean from going to work, and the 1492 Land Back Lane blockers having a policy of letting regular commuters and emergency vehicles through. There are Idle No More events planned in several cities on Canada Day, but they were mentioned as being peaceful and will probably be like the MMIWG marches a few years ago or the original Idle No More gatherings from 2012.

Take those reports with as many shakers of salt as you want, since I got them from leftist/Indigenous sources, but they might at least be hopeful signs. Even at standoffs like Oka and Ipperwash, wasn't it the police and military that started the violence, rather than the Native protesters?

Honestly, I'm having trouble thinking of any Indigenous activists that are advocating actual violence. Even the ones that adamantly deny they're Canadian are bitchslapping the rest of us in print and video rather than doing anything physical. They're saying we might be able to build a newer Canadian identity, one that actually lives up to its bright, shiny image, or challenging us to actually live up to our lofty claims and support their efforts to lobby Ottawa and the provinces.

Maybe I'm wrong-I avoid Twitter like the plague now, have never been on Tumblr and I generally stick to what I'm familiar with on Facebook-but the only people I've seen advocating large-scale violence are ethnic fakers like Ward Churchill (passed himself off as Native) and Jessica Krug (passed herself off as Hispanic) but are really self-hating white people, the kind of white self-proclaimed 'allies' who accuse minorities who disagree with them of suffering from 'internalized racism'.

We're ultimately going to have to open up the Constitution to address the biggest issues Native people are facing, but there's a ton of things the governments could do without touching it. Update the funding formulas for reserve infrastructure so there's enough money to actually maintain their houses and waterworks. Stop taking Native kids into foster care. Obey the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal openings. Release any and all records they have related to residential schools. Reduce the red tape band councils have to put up with. Institute proper, steady funding for language relearning.

No one has an appetite for Meech lake round 2 even with Ford using the notwithstanding claws to help win the next election. That said there is a TON of stuff Trudeau could do right now but his focus was on getting another election going. This has thrown those plans in the trash.

Statue of Pope John Paul II outside Edmonton Catholic church painted red

I know some will think this is wrong or even a hate crime, but I think that until the Catholic Church steps up and offers an apology, compensation, and whatever records they have on residential schools, it's a fair protest.

And the news just keeps getting worse. 182 unmarked graves found at former residential school in Cranbrook B.C.

There will be one of these at the majority of residential schools if not all of them. Buckle in.

My thoughts exactly. It’s going to be a very rough ride. Not all will be found either as there are stories of kids being dumped in swamps. Or incinerated.
