Canadians are probably tired of hearing about the horror of residential schools and are getting uncomfortable.

Everytime you turn on the news now there are increasingly worse stories about the suffering the happened in those child prisons.

It has almost been ten years since The Canadian government formally apologized for the major role they played in the implementation of cultural genocide through the torture and brainwashing of innocent children.

Just a few days ago PM Trudeau mentioned to the Vicar of Christ in Rome that he should apologize for the schools the Catholic church designed and implemented. Reports say the Pope was “open to the idea.”

Soon they will destroy all of the residential records and maybe Canadians will forget about residential school even was. They probably would like to.

Canadian Senator Lynn Beyak says we should focus on the fact that Canada’s residential schools did “some good” according to her. Beyak was even on the Senate’s committee on Aboriginal Peoples until she revealed her racism. Sadly, she probably doesn’t even understand the depravity of her comments.

While she is at it, the optimistic Senator should urge us to examine the “good” that came out of slavery, the holocaust, or maybe aparteid in South Africa.

Beyak probably meant that she is glad we learned mathematics but it is obvious from her statements that she has no idea what we sacrficed to get it. Let’s just say it wasn’t worth it.

And thats the problem with celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday. Canada committed theft and murder of the highest degree possible.

We’ve survived through 150 years of a specific type of racism that was created to remove us from our land. This year I will personally celebrate that the colonizers failed because we are still alive here on our Six Nations Territory and we will never die.
