    Considering at the time I read that there were Natives telling Natives to lie about having been to RSs or being victimized there, I don’t think I’ll put much faith in the “sworn testimony” part of the process.

    Isn’t this about the 200th “official” apology from Canada to the Indians.
    When are they going to apologize for being welfare leaching alcoholics who murder their own women?

    • Alain

      Lord, it never ever ends just like the money pipeline to them.

    • Maggat

      That would be a start in the right direction.

      The indians are trying to get the report on their missing women changed so its says white guys are the culprits.

    • I suspect never.

    Words cannot describe how sick and disgusted I am of this crap. The bottom line is that you can only apologise for something you did or said, apologising for someone else, especially in past historical context, is the height of ridiculousness. Furthermore, it is a blattant lie to claim that all students of every residential school were victims of abuse. So sod off short-pants.

      My grandparents paid for one of my parents to be in a Catholic boarding school. The stories told me are horrific, there are no apologies forthcoming.

  • Shebel

    I apologize to the World —
    For having AN IDIOT – AS OUR Prime Minister.

    FEAR—- My Nephew runs a pretty big business–
    He is quite Political and very astute.

    He cannot afford to support any Political Party.

    He is a Conservative—– but it would be superficial—

    To let it be known.

  • Shebel

    Justin—– Did you ever stop to think—
    That you are not a CANADIAN.

    You sucky little fuck.

  • Martin B

    Turdeau needs to apologize to us all, resign, and never be seen or heard from again.

  • Shebel

    It really does appear to be a WAR on Small Business—
    Both Provincially and Federally–

    Best to bring your l’il Gov’t boy— so that he can EDUCATE us.

  • Shebel

    Let me see now—-
    Do I know how to erect a LADDER ?

    I need a gov’t course– and some fucking pussy to instruct me

      Pull your stocking tight, and scrape it with a nail file.

      Cheers

    Blame the lawyers, but they need the money.
    No-one has offered strong proof of the abuse and violence claimed by those seeking free money. One should remember the fate of Matthew Coon-Coon when he revealed his horrifying sufferings as a residential student.

    Cheers

    • Shebel

      What was his horrific sufferings ?

      He had sex with a Coon?

      • Minicapt

        He lived with family in Montreal during the school year, returning to the bush for the summer …

        Cheers

    Chainsaws are deadly—-
    Especially ,when you get some Gov’t piece of shit—
    Telling you how to operate one.

  • Shebel

    The Indians sure are Milking the Priests.
    Along with the rest of us.

  • Maggat

    IQ80 should apologize to me for wanting to upchuck every time I see a picture of that jerk.

    • Shebel

      You do realize that we are not attempting to be particularly nice.

      • Maggat

        Yes

    In 2008 Harper made an apology for residential schools but omitted Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Does anyone remember why there were omissions?

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      No, I’m an American so we heard none of that stuff down here.
      How come they were omitted?

    • Exile1981

      Wasn’t it because those ones were provincially run.

  • Frances

    And will the Micmac apologize to the Beothuk for helping exterminate them?
