I, Fr. Gilbert, have many people asking about the shocking news about the graves of indigenous children. I was sent this report and it helped me to have an understanding... It helped me and I hope this will help you. The pain and suffering of the First Nation People must be unbearable because all of us suffer when a child dies.
Dr. Scott Hamilton was asked by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to find and locate the graves of indigenous children... This was in 2015. Dr. Hamilton submitted his report in 2015. For some reason little was used about this report, now it is on line posted by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. This report is a good, but sad, history of events.
Let us remember to pray for the children and their families.
