Canada Day Muted As Nation Reckons With Residential School Legacy

On July 1, 1867, the confederation known historically as the Dominion of Canada became official with four provinces, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. Six more provinces joined between 1870 and 1949. The celebration of Canada Day is complicated this year. Many people are not celebrating at all, and others are celebrating differently due to recent discoveries of the bodies of hundreds of indigenous children in unmarked graves at former Indian Residential Schools in British Columbia and Saskatchewan. On May 27, 215 bodies were discovered at a former residential school site in Kamloops, British Columbia.

Hundreds of Native American children’s remains were recently found in a mass grave at a residential school site in Canada. The U.S. also sent Native children to such schools and local Haudenosaunee people are still seeking justice.
