It's simple math. If 150,000 children entered the schools, and 30% of them died, that's roughly 50,000.
Yes, correct, except that the only accurate number in that formula is 150,000.
If 150,000 children entered the schools during the years that Bryce did his study, that would be right. But they didn't -- if you go and look at his
reports, the actual total number of deaths that he reports are only a couple of hundred, because these were very small schools at the time. The
150,000 number is for all 89 schools over 100 years, and no one
, apart from Kevin Annett, claims that there was a 30% sustained death rate for
those 100 years.
I don't know why you keep arguing numbers
Because they aren't valid, and producing obviously false data in an effort to condemn some cause is dishonest and undermines the real cause. Kevin
Annett is a crackpot, whose grandstanding tactics (yesterday he "officially dissolved the Catholic church" and is encouraging his followers to seize
the property of Catholic churches around the world, aka "stealing") do far more harm the First Nations peoples than anything else, and that's why
so many of them have denounced him.
