Residential Schools


You are taking considerable flak from some (many) Canadians regarding your comment on residential schools. I suggest you read the following article.

Growing up in Kenora, I played hockey with George Kakeway, the person interviewed in this article. We were often billeted together in out-of-town competitions and still talk about the good old days. Teams I was on as a youngster played teams from St Mary's residential school on a regular basis (we generally lost against them!) I always was amazed at their skills and the fact they were always just a typical group fun loving kids.

I send you this link as an illustration that not every residential school student had a horrible experience as you clearly indicated in your comments.

Do not back down!
