Never before had any words been so anticipated.

I stood in a hotel ballroom with 1,000 residential school survivors and their families to watch the Prime Minister say sorry for what Canada had done. For abducting young children, then letting sanctioned officials beat and molest them. For letting those children die.

The worst choice, except for all the others – Globe and Mail

The worst choice, except for all the others
Schools on first nations reserves weren’t up to the task then, and they may not be now

TOM FLANAGAN
From Wednesday’s Globe and Mail
June 18, 2008 at 6:35 AM EDT

Wherever they went in Canada, Christian missionaries set up voluntary boarding schools and day schools for aboriginal children. The Canadian government began to involve itself at the end of the 1870s, when the end of the buffalo destroyed the economy of the Plains Indians and Métis. Famine loomed in the short term; in the longer term, it seemed necessary to help the native population convert from hunting to agriculture as a way of life.

When saying sorry is saying nothing at all

VICTORIA — Listening to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s apology last week, my thoughts kept wandering to Premier Gordon Campbell’s “new relationship” with aboriginal peoples. We’ve not heard much lately from him on that subject, though he seemed for a time to be on a personal mission. And we’re still left to wonder why – on an issue included in the Liberals’ 2005 election platform – Mr. Campbell allowed his caucus a free vote when the Tsawwassen treaty came before the legislature.
