Kamloops Indigenous Residential School in British Columbia once hosted 500 children

Mass graves with the remains of 215 children have been discovered in Canada in a former boarding school set up for indigenous 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 chairman Tk’emlups te Secwepemc.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said it was a “painful reminder” of “a shameful chapter in our country’s history”. The First Nation is working with museum experts and a coroner to determine the cause and time of death, even the moment of which is unknown. .
