I'm weeping... I'm hurt. Hurt for my fellow indigenous people that suffered the horrors of these Residential Schools and what the Catholic Church has done to them...

Cancelling Canada Day is literally the bare fucking minimum symbolic gesture of basic decency , not some extreme radical position of the far left. We've uncovered over a thousand unmarked graves for children, with countless more to go. What the fuck is there to celebrate?
Celebrate the founding of Canada? That's celebrating the colonialism & white supremacy that created the systems that lead to those children's murder & abuse.
celebrate where we are now? How many indigenous people live without clean water? How many residential school survivors are still stuck in court battles with the gov? How many indigenous people are *still* being murdered by the RCMP today?
So yeah, cancel canada day. But also, remember that's a bare minimum and just symbolic. Fight for material change & decolonialization. Support Land Back movements, Support protests to abolish the RCMP. Give money to indigenous mutual aid networks.

The total of undocumented graves of children who died and were killed in Indian residential schools is now at 1323. UNDOCMENTED, there are already over 6000 on the record. There are still over 130 other schools to investigate still. And, just so Canadians understand...given the current numbers, 7323 children, if Canada was to lower it's flag to half-mast for one day for each child, as the numbers stand today the flag would not rise for over 20 years. Even if they were to lower it for one hour for every child, that would be 305 days. I hope this paints a very clear image. I am hurt, my community is hurting, our nations are mourning, and we have been in mourning for years. I pray this does not fall on deaf ears. Non-indigenous Canadians, you no longer have an excuse to claim ignorance. You can no longer say "I had no idea Canada did this." It did. And in many ways Canada continues this opression and genocide to this day.

On Tuesday, the federal government announced that it would provide just under 4.9 million Canadian dollars (about $3.9 million) to Indigenous communities in Saskatchewan to search for graves. The provincial government previously committed 2 million Canadian dollars ($1.6 million).
Like Kamloops, the Marieval school, which opened in 1899, was operated for most of its history by the Roman Catholic Church for the government of Canada. A marked cemetery still exists on the grounds of the school, which closed in 1997 and was subsequently demolished.
The commission called for a papal apology for the role of the church, which operated about 70 percent of the schools. (The rest were run by Protestant denominations.) But despite a personal appeal from Mr. Trudeau to the Vatican, Pope Francis has still not taken that step. By contrast, the leadership of the United Church of Canada, the country’s largest Protestant denomination, apologized in 1986 for its role in running the schools.
Since the Kamloops announcement, Chief Cameron said, he has been traveling around the province, where farming and mining are major industries, looking at former school sites.
“You can see with your plain eye the indent of the ground where these bodies are to be found,” he said in an interview Wednesday night. “These children are sitting there, waiting to be found.”

“Not Ready For Such A Change At Present,” Toronto Globe. February 6, 1918. Page 14. ----- THRASHERS AND FARMERS EXPRESS OPINION ON THRASHING GANGS. --- (Canadian Press Despatch.) Blenheim, Feb. 5. - A meeting of thrashers and farmers was held at the township hall here to-day to discuss a proposal upon which the Ontario Department of Agriculture wants expression of opinion by farmers throughout the Province. It has been suggested that farmers would be better able to get their own work done if, instead of each farmer calling in his neighbors to help him thrash, every thrashing outfit carry enough of a gang to do the thrashing with the help of the farmer alone. After some discussion a resolution was passed expressing the opinion that the farming communities are not ready for such a change at the present time.

“Alleged German Spy Arrested At Vancouver,” Toronto Globe. February 6, 1918. Page 14. ---- AUTHORITIES THINK THEY HAVE A DANGEROUS ENEMY OF ALLIES --- (Canadian Press Despatch.) Vancouver, Feb. 5. - Richard Willkus, alias Melson, is under arrest on suspicion of being a German spy, and a vessel which is at present taking on cargo in port for an European port is being searched for bombs or other destructive engines which may possibly have been placed in her by the accused.
While no charge save that of failing to report has thus far been proferred against the accused, certain documents found in possession of Wilkus lead the authorities to believe they have in custody a dangerous enemy to the allies.
