The remains of two hundred and fifteen children found in Kamloops. Many more may yet to be found. Our hearts are heavy as we mourn each and every precious life that was taken. #EveryChildMatters. Our thoughts are with the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation and other First Nations communities whose lives were, and continue to be, affected by the residential school system. Our deepest condolences to the families whose children were taken from them. Knowing that there is much work ahead for all of us to do, we remain steadfast in our commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, and Resurgence. The truths of our past must guide the future we build together.
