Subject: RE: BS: Cultural genocide
Current estimates are that 6000 people were systematically murdered or otherwise disposed of by residential schools. The last two closed in the mid 1990s. That estimate was arrived at by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada headed by Justice Murray Sinclair. The final report will be released in July. Six volumes. Justice Sinclair seems to think there are more deaths unaccounted for. I fully expect our present government in Ottawa will whitewash it.
