Residential Schools


Do not apologise. Above all do not resign. Your remarks about the residentail school situation in this country need to be heard. As the brother of a nun who worked in the system, and the nephew of a jesuit who worked there too, I categorically refuse to believe that all the people who worked in these schools were as evil as they are being portrayed to be. Indeed, They were seeking , under the social rules that were generally accepted at the time to do good,and to help these children.

There are some people out there who can thank that much maligned systerm for the education that they now have...despite what the politicians who have a vested interest in denigrating the system for their own political advancement have to say. We will never win the argument.but at least never let it be said that we didn't speak up.

Thank you !
