    @ leftcoast. The school was established in 1890 and in operation until 1969, when it was taken over by the federal government to be used as a day school residence. The school closed in 1978.

    @left coast. Residential schools were in operation till 1991. There is plenty of witness testimony from living people about the murders, rapes and abuse that went on. There are 50000 missing native children. In other countries we call this genocide but in Canada we call it “tuberculosis”. Give it a rest. Canada cannot move forward as a nation until we come to terms with its past and the people responsible if alive must be held accountable

    Richard . . . it’s 1890 and 100s of kids in a Residential School, many coming from 100s of miles away. Many childhood diseases claimed the lives of children in the late 19th and early 20th century. Living conditions on Native reserves in the late 19th & early 20th century were not like today . . . and today they are not great.

    This did not happen in the 1980s man, you obviously have trouble putting history in it’s proper context . . . My own Grandmother’s family of 9 siblings, 4 died before they reached puberty in the later 19th century. We looked up the information at the Archives in Sweden back in 2001.

    “There is another piece of evidence to consider that suggests the mortality of children was in fact very high in much of humanity’s history: birth rates were high, but population growth was close to zero.”

    “we find that a large number of independent studies for very different societies, locations, and times come to surprisingly similar assessments: all point to very high mortality rates for children. For societies that lived thousands of kilometers away from each other and were separated by thousands of years of history, mortality in childhood was terribly high in all of them. The researchers find that on average a quarter of infants died before their first birthday and half of all children died before they reached puberty.”

    While there were likely some bad people at the Residential School, we still see that today in the same organization, the majority believed they were doing good work.
    No one talks of the 1000s of kids who left these schools with an education and went on to be productive citizens.

    Unfortunately nothing has changed with our “Victim” groups . . .

    I have heard that there are also mass graves in Nanaimo that have been fenced off by the government to keep the truth from getting out. I also wonder if William Coombes friends that went missing in 1964 are in that pit. Absolute tragedy.

    I am not First Nations but I am a Mother, the thoughts of this happening to me,having my child or children taken away from me in this way and for those reasons is a nightmare from hell. My heartbreaks for these children, their parents and First Nation people.

    Left Coast. You must be brain dead. How many schools have grave yards?
    This is straight out of a horror movie. These are kids!

    So a residential school founded in 1890 had children die?

    What was the child mortality rate in the 19th century? I suspect very high, many adults only lived into their 50s . . .

    How many died in the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic? Did anyone save the Records?

    So a school that operated for almost 100 years had 215 child deaths, that’s a little more than 2 per year . . . and that compares HOW with a remote Indian Bands today in Canada’s hinterland . . . I suspect far more than that die from Drugs, Alcohol, Neglect and Abuse!

    This smells a lot like the “Missing Woman” nonsense . . . where RCMP data shows that the numbers are comparable to the rest of Canada.

    NO one ever does any research on the number of students who went on to be productive hard working Canadians . . . why do you suppose that is? It goes against the narrative & the Cash Flow ! ! !

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
