2012: Turn Your Back on The Cities of Death

Bone Fragment unearthed at former Anglican Indian school in Brantford, Ontario

Canada and its churches tried for decades to bury and forget the bone, and the other remains of the 50,000 and more children who died in their residential “schools”. And when these innocents’ deaths could no longer be denied, the same guilty parties distracted us from their foul deed with “reconciliation” babble and a whitewashing “truth and reconciliation commission” that has not once turned over the soil at a residential school grave. -Kevin Arnett
