Residential Schools


Dear Senator Beyak:

Your remarks on residential schools sounded a note of objectivity and balance that is sadly missing from public discussion of this issue. You drew attention to the problems that arose in the schools but you also reminded your colleagues that many who worked there have had their reputations besmirched by a mindless and undiscriminating wave of criticism. I very much hope that you will not be persuaded to retract any of your remarks because they are a beacon of sanity in an otherwise dark area of our public discourse and this should not be dimmed.

Yours sincerely,
