Deaths in Residential Schools

http://www.cbc.ca/player/News/Politics/Power+&+Politics/ID/2428753310/

Follow up - Evan Solomon of CBC in an interview with Chief Justice Murray Sinclair (head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission) about the thousands of  deaths of aboriginal children in government and church run residential schools in Canada. More than 4,000 in BC alone from c1910 - 1956. There were so many earlier that the government stopped publishing statistics. I hope the link works.

Chief Justice Sinclair said he believes these numbers are only the tip of the iceberg. Imagine that 4,000+ could be the tip of the iceberg in just one province.

It is from January 7, 2014 - Evan Solomon on CBC
