From the article: 6,000 aboriginal children died in residential school system, report finds

Remember folks, this is not in the “distant past” I am a 1st generation survivor my mother was raped and abused in the Residential school here in Nova Scotia when she was a child, she was taken away from her family and unable to see her siblings.  The fallout of the residential school system will be felt by countless people in the newt few generations.  Let this never happen again, anywhere in this world.

They don’t even talk about the enormous rates of sexual abuse here, or really dwell on the fact that the residential schools were never intended to offer real education so much as to stamp out indigenous culture, or mention the fact that the students there were used for dangerous, non-consensual medical experiments…really, it’s impossible to overstate just how deliberately, calculatedly evil the entire program was.
