That's the difference between myself and most of the other people in the thread -- I prefer the truth over fantasy, even when it's not something I'm proud to be a part of.

"the Education of Little Tree will give you a clue how Tsalagi as well as many many other Nations ended up in boarding schools. the boarding schools were to make our ancestors like you adjensen.. Thank Goodness they failed.. I think it's hubris to expect a people who have experienced genocide to justify their experiences to a Fascist Jesuit who only cares about defending pedophiles in the church. The more that man defends the church the more he digs a hole. I don't give a rats **** what you think .I Know what my people went through
I wouldn't trust any other kind…
I do not believe that in Canada it was the Catholic Church but rather the Anglican) to the Native peoples that was/were horrendous.
The Indian residential schools of of "residential" (boarding) schools for Native Canadians (First Nations or "Indians"; Métis; and Inuit, formerly "Eskimos") funded by the Canadian government's Indian Affairs and Northern Department, and administered by Christian churches, most notably the Catholic Church in Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada.
For a century, from the 1880s until the mid-1980s, the government of Canada maintained a system of boarding schools for Native children that were operated by churches, including the Anglican and Presbyterian churches, the United Church of Canada, and the Roman Catholic Church. The schools’ ostensible purpose was to provide education for Native children. But that education served a larger purpose, one that can only be termed genocidal: to eliminate indigenous culture from Canada.
“The problem with the Indians is one of morality and religion,” said the Reverend A. E. Caldwell of his school in 1938. “They lack the basic fundamentals of civilized thought and spirit, which explains their childlike nature and behavior. At our school we strive to turn them into mature Christians who will learn how to behave in the world and surrender their barbaric way of life and their treaty rights, which keep them trapped on their land and in a primitive existence. Only then will the Indian problem in our country be solved.” - See more at: www.culturalsurvival.org...
Any headway on providing evidence that 50,000 children were murdered
The last federally operated residential school was closed in 1996. In total, about 150,000 First Nations children passed through the residential school system
Peter Henderson Bryce (August 17, 1853 – January 15, 1932) was an official of the Ontario Health Department, Canada. He released his famous book in 1922 titled The Story of a National Crime: Being a Record of the Health Conditions of the Indians of Canada from 1904 to 1921, which exposed genocide of the aboriginals in Canada.
Bryce was hired by Indian Affairs Department in Ottawa to report on the health conditions of the Canadian residential school system in western Canada and British Columbia . His report was officially buried by the government till 1922, when Bryce who was subsequently hounded out from his service released it as a book.
Bryce claimed that Indian children were being systematically and deliberately killed in the residential schools. He cited an average mortality rate of between 30% to 60%.
By some estimates, 50,000 children died in those schools, out of 100,000 who attended. To make matters worse, there is evidence that in many schools the death rates had a helping hand. Dr. Peter Bryce, the chief medical officer for the Department of Indian Affairs, conducted a survey of the residential schools in 1909 and issued a report in which he said, “I believe the conditions are being deliberately created in our residential schools to spread infectious diseases. It is not unusual for children who are dying from consumption to be admitted to schools and housed alongside healthy children.” - See more at: www.culturalsurvival.org...

"You can't wake someone who is pretending to be asleep." ~ Native American Proverb
“You can’t wake a person who is pretending to be asleep” is an ancient Navajo proverb. The wisdom of this proverb has withstood the test of time and therefore it should not escape your attention today. Slow down, for just a minute, and consider it:
Meaning of “You can’t wake a person who is pretending to be asleep”
• People who are pretending to be asleep will resist being awakened because they have something to lose by ending the charade.
• People who pretend to be asleep can often lose track of what is real and what is pretend and thus cannot respond normally to situations.
• People will act as if nothing is happening when they don’t want to face the reality of the situation by pretending to be unaware or unsure despite being presented with the evidence.

"Don’t shake, America. This is only what You have brought upon yourself.” ~ Chief Geronimo
Chief Geronimo, of the Apaches, appeared to Cynthia Judd in a dream and told her that America is about to reap what she has sown. LINK
On Monday, the Associated Press published excerpts from 212 Vatican documents exposed in the book The Will to Not Know. They mostly concern the Reverend Marcial Maciel, leader of the troubled Order of the Legion of Christ, who possessed “a certain moral lassitude” and lived a life that “wasn’t very pious and at the same time quite comfortable.”
According to the documents, the Vatican knew about Rev. Maciel’s weaknesses beginning in 1948, and was complicit in hiding his crimes from the general public. An October 20, 1976 letter from Rev. Juan Vaca described the “disgrace and moral torment” that began when Rev. Maciel abused him one night in 1949 and listed 20 other Legion of Christ seminarians that Rev. Maciel also sexually abused.
A December 24, 1978 affidavit from another priest, Felix Alarcon, backed Rev. Vaca’s story, and added that “the fact that the drug-related and homosexual activity of the founder could occur for such a long period of time without correction is only a signal of the deeper problem of the congregation itself. The congregation is a ‘cult’ of regimented and indoctrinated followers dependent slavishly on a central dependent-figure.”
Yes, congratulations on regurgitating what Annett has been saying, and which I pointed out he has been saying, and which I have shown to be nothing more than an fantasy number of his, not grounded in reality.
You cannot take one person's statistic for a limited time over a limited geographic area and apply it to the entire country of Canada for over a hundred years and think that to be evidence.
If 150,000 children attended these schools from 1890 to 1996, that 30% death rate would have had to be continuous across the entire country and for the full 100 years, and we know that it was not.
So, no, you have no evidence of Annett's 50,000 - 100,000 children murdered by the Canadian government.
Either produce something tangible, or stop lying about it.
The very same video that you posted cites my independent source, Bryce, who states that the mortality rate was 30 - 60 percent, and verifies the continuing mortality rates up through to the 1970's, with some schools boasting a whopping 70 percent mortality rate!
five years after entry, 30% to 60% of students had died, or 6–12% per annum
meaning that the death rate was not 30 - 60% per year.
