Trudeau to apologize to excluded residential school students

Trudeau to apologize to excluded residential school students

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized Friday on behalf of Canada to former indigenous students for the abuse they suffered at residential schools in Newfoundland-Labrador province.

Trudeau will deliver the apology at the Lawrence O'Brien Arts Centre in Happy Valley-Goose Bay at 10:30 a.m. AT. "We know that the delay has caused you greater pain and suffering". Instead many children were severed from their family, culture and language, beaten and abused, and made to feel shame for who they were.

Then word came from Ottawa that former prime minister Stephen Harper was going to issue an apology - again they were crushed when the 2008 apology left them out.

But there was no money or apology to the Newfoundland-Labrador students because, Harper argued, the schools were set up before Newfoundland joined Canada in 1949 and were not run under the federal government.

The statement said besides the abuse of Innu children in IGA and Moravian schools, abuse also took place in Roman Catholic schools and in the homes of missionaries and teachers in the communities of Sheshatshiu and Davis Inlet, as well as at the Mount Cashel orphanage in St. John's - and that those cases are not being recognized in the apology.

His Conservative government argued for much of the next decade that Ottawa didn't oversee those schools but the Liberal government offered a year ago to settle a class-action lawsuit for $50 million.

The Innu Nation says it can not accept any apology for removing children from their homes to go to residential schools unless something is done about the number of Innu children in the province's care. "We call upon all Canadians to take part in the next chapter, a time when indigenous and non-indigenous people build the future we want together".

Toby Obed, who attended the North West River residential school in the 1970s, accepted the government's apology on behalf of survivors. "I never thought this would happen".

One group that rejected Trudeau's apology was the Innu Nation, whose leaders boycotted the ceremony.
