Hundreds of unmarked graves have been found near a former Catholic boarding school for indigenous children in western Canada , less than a month ...

"The only crime we ever committed as children was being born indigenous," he said.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the findings at both Kamloops and Marieval"a shameful reminder of the systemic racism, discrimination, and injustice that indigenous peoples have faced - and continue to face - in this country."

"Together, we must acknowledge this truth, learn from our past, and walk the shared path of reconciliation, so we can build a better future," he said.'WE WILL FIND MORE BODIES'The Marieval residential school in eastern Saskatchewan hosted indigenous children until the mid-1990s before being demolished and replaced by a day school.
