Ellis Ross: Canadians coming together over residential school abuses  Back to video
I was angry when I heard these stories. It still upsets me to think about it. It wasn’t right. It wasn’t fair.
Hearing the stories from Kamloops and now Saskatchewan about hundreds of unmarked graves at the sites of former residential schools brings back a lot of the stories I read and that I was told about abuse, unhappiness, and wrenching family separation.

Festival Plaza official grand opening taking place Friday


Council approved the project in 2019, and Kalmar Construction started building the plaza last summer. The total cost of the plaza was approximately $3.2 million, with $1.9 million coming from the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Grant.
Last year, the city hosted a public art competition, offering local artists the opportunity to display their work on the obelisks. Each contains a large gas-fueled fire cauldron within an enclosed steel structure.
Visitors will notice the performance oval is surrounded by eight leaning tamarack poles, representing the skeleton structure of a teepee.
The plaza also features artistic paving patterns throughout the site with various coloured concrete surfaces and cement bleachers with traditional beadwork imagery provided by Garry Oker of the Doig River First Nations.

Churches Are Being Burned to the Ground in Canada


A spree of church arsons have occurred across Canada. In less than two weeks, seven churches have burned following the discovery of over 1,000 unmarked graves on the land of former boarding schools for Indigenous assimilation.
The term “cultural genocide” has been used to describe the treatment of Indigenous children from the 1880s to the 1990s throughout Canada. Over 110 years, roughly 150,000 Indigenous children were sent to boarding schools to be stripped of their language and culture, facing horrific emotional, physical and sexual abuse in the process, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission reports [via BBC].
At least 130 of these schools -- many run by the Catholic Church -- were open throughout Canada until as late as 1996. It’s estimated that up to 6,000 neglected children died of malnutrition and disease at these residential schools, though the true number may never be known as many records were destroyed.

'Temperature rising': First Nations leaders condemn rash of church fires across Canada Back to video
“They were both intentionally set, no doubt about that,” said Tom Littlechild, director of emergency services for the Siksika Nation. “But both structures are very intact.”
The same cannot be said of some other churches.
Like everyone, Littlechild thinks he knows what might be behind the attacks.

Whitehorse Daily Star: MLA's post sparked fierce reaction


A June 18 Facebook post caused consternation and angst on social media over the National Indigenous Peoples Day long weekend.
Yukon Party MLA Yvonne Clarke posted: “On June 17, the Liberal Government signed a Ministerial Order under the Civil Emergency Measures Act.
“They provided no press release, explanation, or context to the order before posting it on the Yukon Government website. The order is available here: https://legislation.yukon.ca/regs/mo2021_018.pdf.”
Clarke’s post ignited a bit of a firestorm over the long weekend, as people tried to interpret what the new order meant.
She came in for some flak for posting the item without context – but the party defended her.

Editorial: Is Canada Day as usual appropriate this year?


To others, having a big to-do about the country that forcibly removed Indigenous children from their homes and sent them away to schools that seemed to many of the students who attended them more like prisons or work camps and, for at least a few thousand, were death sentences, whether from disease, malnutrition or other causes, in the wake of these revelations, shows how important dealing with our racist, colonial past and present really is.
Are countries judged by their worst past actions, which in Canada’s case include other racist policies against people of Chinese, Indian and Japanese descent, to name a few? Or are they judged by their best actions and ideals, even if they fail to lived up to the latter many times? For individuals who have committed crimes, a category in which the number of Indigenous people far outweighs their proportion of the country’s population as a whole, it seems to be the latter.

City switches gears for Canada Day, focuses on reconciliation


NEWS RELEASE
****************************
In continued efforts toward reconciliation, and in solidarity and consultation with local members of the Indigenous community, the city’s 2021 Canada Day activities are being themed around our shared history and will focus on education, reconciliation and reflection. 
The city encourages residents to use Canada Day as an opportunity to learn about the histories and cultures of the Indigenous peoples of this region.
As part of its recognition for National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21, the city prepared virtual programming that celebrated the heritage, diverse cultures and significant contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, and collected community partner resources for continued learning.
