When Abegweit First Nation Chief Junior Gould thinks about the bodies of the 215 children found buried at a former residential school in Kamloops, B.C., he thinks too about his own father, who attended a residential school in Nova Scotia.?
“What if he was buried in one of those unmarked gravesIndia? That means Chief Gould would not exist. That would mean my daughter, who is a nurseAlberta will be fully open and back to normal for a truly great Alberta summer., would not exist,” said?Gould.
Gould said it’s important for the community to honour those?lost children, so he’s asking people on P.E.I. to donate children’s shoes.
The plan is to pile 215 pairs of them outside the First Nation’s administration offices as a memorialProvincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry on Tuesday announced B.C.. The site will also feature mock graves, and residential school survivors are expected take part in a ceremony there Monday afternoon, if enough shoes have been collected by then.?
