A programme released on Thursday showed the pope plans to go ahead with the July 24-30 trip despite problems with his knee that forced him to cancel a visit to Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan in the first week of July. The government says the legislation would ensure that online streaming services promote Canadian music and stories and support local jobs. The state-sanctioned schools, which sought to erase indigenous cultures and where many children suffered abuse, were at the centre of discussions between the pope and indigenous people at the Vatican in March and April. Joey, 55, was pictured among a group of participants on stage, humming along in the Buddhist conference in images shared on Xiaohongshu captioned 'caught a wild Joey Wong', reported Zaobao yesterday (June 22). Francis, 85, apologised during those meetings and the groups accepted his apology but the pope promised to apologise in Canada as well. Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez, who introduced the bill in February, says the changes are meant for commercial programs streamed online and would not apply to individual Canadians. The pope will visit Edmonton, Maskwacis, Lac Ste. Customers can look forward to perennial favourites like Uncle Robert Western & BBQ as well as Newspaper Curry Rice.

The stated aim of the schools, which operated between 1831 and 1996, was to assimilate indigenous children. They were run by Christian denominations on behalf of the government, most by the Catholic Church. Upset by the utter disrespect and uncalled for ridicule, Taiwanese showbiz personality Denny Tsao stepped in to defend her image . Francis issued an historic apology on April 1 at the end of a week of meetings with a first group of Canadian indigenous people. "For the deplorable behaviour of those members of the Catholic Church, I ask forgiveness from God and I would like to tell you from the bottom of my heart that I am very pained," he said at the time. On his last day in Canada, in Iqaluit, capital of the territory of Nunavut, he is due to have a private meeting with survivors of the residential schools.

The recurring schools scandal broke out again last year with the discovery of the remains of 215 children at the former Indian Residential School in Kamloops in the Western Canadian province of British Columbia.

Francis was elected pope nearly two decades after the last schools closed.
