British Columbia Kamloops Residential School hosted 500 children

A mass grave with the remains of 215 children was found in Canada in an old residential school built for Aboriginal students.

The children were students at Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia, which closed in 1978.

The discovery was announced on Thursday (27) by First Nation President Tk’emlups te Secwepemc.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this was a “painful reminder” of “a shameful chapter in the history of our country”. The First Nation is working with museum experts and healing staff to determine the causes and timing of the deaths, which until now are unknown.
