Re: “Facts amiss in Kamloops,” Letters, June 24
Although David Baines starts out with the truth that “Indian residential schools were a disgrace, in principle and practice,” he completely erases all that by looking for inaccuracies in media reporting.
To which I say: Who cares?!
What’s really important here is that after six years of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report being released, it took a grave for people to finally listen!
You want exact numbers of bodies at a residential school? Listen to yourself!
The fact that there is even one body found at a school should enrage you! Imagine if all our schools had graveyards on the premises. That would be concerning, would it not?
Perhaps, you should try focusing on listening to those who have been trying to tell us for so long. Their stories of what they went through are fact.
June 30 wasn’t the only day to listen — everyday is.
