Program Title: Still Unreconciled in Canada: A Century of Residential School Horrors
Description: Today on a special episode of the Global Research News Hour, as increasing numbers of Canadians wake up to the reality of the horrors that took place in the residential school system, we hear multiple perspectives about what it all means for the survivors, for settlers, for the foundation of the building of this country and for the prospects of righting relationships and moving forward in a mutually advantageous way. In our first half hour we hear from Professor Niigaan Sinclair about why some Canadians are refusing to associate residential schools with a genocide. Then we hear from Professor David Macdonald about the origins of residential schools and what continues their trend toward violence today. We’ll hear from former United Church Minister Kevin Annett about his own endeavors to correct the record and what is missing from the media’s current reporting. Finally, researcher Richard Sanders shares the secret about FICTIVE CANADA and the role that played in doing nothing in the face of atrocities against Indigenous people.
