Canada: Hundreds of unmarked graves found at residential school


Canada: Hundreds of unmarked graves found at residential school


In recent weeks, people have placed children's shoes at memorials to mourn those who died at Canada's indigenous schools

An indigenous group in Canada says it has found hundreds of unmarked graves at the site of a former residential school in Saskatchewan.

The Cowessess First Nation said on Wednesday that the discovery was "the most significantly substantial to date in Canada".

However the group did not specify the exact number of graves found.

It comes weeks after the remains of 215 children were found at a similar residential school in British Columbia.

Such compulsory boarding schools were run by the Canadian government and religious authorities during the 19th and 20th Centuries with the aim of assimilating indigenous youth.

Last month, the Cowessess began to use ground-penetrating radar to locate unmarked graves at the cemetery of the Marieval Indian Residential School in Saskatchewan.

The Cowessess called the discovery "horrific and shocking". The group is set to release further details during a news conference on Thursday.

Perry Bellegarde, national chief of the Assembly of First Nations described the finding of the graves as "tragic but not surprising". "I urge all Canadians to stand with First Nations in this extremely difficult and emotional time," he wrote on Twitter.

Between 1863 and 1998, more than 150,000 indigenous children were taken from their families and placed in these schools.

The children were often not allowed to speak their language or to practice their culture, and many were mistreated and abused.

A commission launched in 2008 to document the impacts of this system found that large numbers of indigenous children never returned to their home communities.

In 2008, the Canadian government formally apologised for the system.


  1. fake news from bbc, western propagandist

  2. Canada apologised more than a decade ago, and made restitution to those who were badly affected.

    Compare this to the comprehensive lies and obfuscation by the CCP over its Genocide in Xinjiang.

    1. Mfer, the apology done in 2008 was for the policy!

      The newly discovered child mass graves r been buried so deep & for so long such that the perpetrators had long gone to hell!

      What's the current crocodile tears sheddings & restitutions done to the families of these unfortunate children? Most likely too these families have also been permanently removed from the surface of their ancestral 'canada' land in the same fate as those children!

      Typically mfering publicity display parades to showcase the superfluous hippo humanity that mfer, like u, chanting days&night.

    2. Wakakakaka, they made restitution to those who were badly affected? They just gave lips service apology only! They left the souls of those 215 children wondering in the wilderness without doing anything until discovered recently!.

      Compare with CCP, not only CCP did not do what the USA, Canada, England & Australia falsely alleged them of doing in Xinjiang, they protect and provide safety, peace, development, improved living standard, increase life expectancy etc that made the Uyghurs love their government of CHINA.

      Unfortunately there are still people who believe the lies of the west without common sense, only mere photos of high wall with CCTV and barbed wire and their fantasies and imagination.

      They can't show the video or photos of tanks crushing the Chinese students or Chinese students bodies flowing with blood lying on the Tiananmen Square because there never was such happening?

  3. They can't produced any concrete proof of actual video or photos on China crime against Uyghurs, the best was only some photos with high wall installed with CCTV and barbed wire, but yet they can described the types of actions, treatments, conditions so vividly, no wonder lah, they have great experience practicing them mah.

  4. Genocide in Xinjiang!


    Not only no proofs, they also fabricating fake photos via PS!

    Yet there r mfers, willingly swallow the whole load of lies to continue & expand these fake accusations!

    The only telling is they r just pure evil China/Chinese/CCP haters.
