Residential Schools


Dear Senator Beyak:

I want you to know that we are on your side.

We know that the residential schools were not all bad from native friends we have known here in Thunder Bay.

No doubt many problems existed, as you have acknowledged, but to many the schools did a lot of good.

I’m happy to see some articles in the paper, in particular the one by Patrick R. Chapin on Sunday.

He wrote: “This business with Sen. Lynn Beyak’s residential schools comments has gotten completely out of hand.”

He is absolutely right, we feel the same way.

Keep up the good work, Senator!
