Canada Lowers Flags After Bodies Of Children Discovered At Residential School


Canada ordered flags to fly at half-mast Sunday, days after an indigenous community announced that they had found hundreds of bodies at one of the schools that the government placed indigenous children in for decades. 

The school, located in Kamloops, British Columbia, was one of many schools that took in children the Canadian government forcibly removed from indigenous tribes for mandatory assimilation. Many children in those schools were neglected or abused, and some died. 

“To honour the 215 children whose lives were taken at the former Kamloops residential school and all Indigenous children who never made it home, the survivors, and their families, I have asked that the Peace Tower flag and flags on all federal buildings be flown at half-mast,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a statement Sunday.
