A Message of Condolences From the SRD Board Chair After the Finding of 215 Children’s Remains in Kamloops
The tragic discovery of the unmarked remains of 215 children at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School is a painful reminder of the residential school system’s legacy of violence and abuse. No words can make right a system designed to assimilate and extinguish Indigenous Peoples.
The Strathcona Regional District Board and staff are heartbroken of the findings. We would like to acknowledge and express our sympathy to the Tk’emplups te Secwepemc and all Indigenous people affected by the tragedy discovered at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, the communities and all those grieving.
We all have a responsibility to act. The SRD is committed to learn and reconcile with the Indigenous People in our communities.
We must strive to better understand the painful legacy of the residential school system and support First Nations communities here at home, across BC and throughout Canada. #everychildmatters... See MoreSee Less
