Nearly 200 Anonymous Graves Discovered Again in Former Boarding School in Canada


Dozens of anonymous graves have again been discovered near a former boarding school for the indigenous population in Canada. This find, the third in a month, included 182 anonymous graves. That reports the indigenous community in Lower Kootenay.


On Wednesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that the Canadian flag would fly at half-mast in parliament on Thursday’s national holiday.

This time the discovery happened near the former Saint Eugene boarding school in Cranbrook, in the western province of British Columbia.

Last week, no fewer than 751 anonymous graves were found in Marieval (in the western province of Saskatchewan), after the remains of 215 students were found in Kamloops (also British Columbia) at the end of May.

The boarding schools, which remained open in some places until the 1990s, were run by the Catholic Church. Trudeau has already called on Pope Francis to apologize in Canada.
