"Canadaís Truth and Reconciliation Commission concluded in 2015 that at least 3,200 students died, later revising that figure to 4,100. The No. 1 cause of death was tuberculosis; influenza hit hard, too. Far from home, children were often buried on site, their graves marked with wooden crosses, most of which deteriorated and disappeared."
Some bad stuff went on, too.
Please understand. I'm appalled by what was done in the past. This is precisely the sort of thing Big Religion gets itself entangled in, far too willingly and waaaaay too often.
Still, these acts of terrorism are entirely inappropriate. They solve nothing.
