Jagmeet Singh Called Trudeau Out For His Response To The Unmarked Graves Discovery

"It's not good enough for this Liberal govt to only offer condolences."

Saskatchewan Residential Schools: Jagmeet Singh Called Trudeau Out For His Response

Following the discovery of 751 unmarked graves at a former Saskatchewan residential school, Jagmeet Singh has spoken out, criticizing the response from Trudeau's government.*

Singh took to social media to say that "it's not good enough for this Liberal govt to only offer condolences."

"There remains an unbroken legacy of injustice, as long as Justin Trudeau fights Indigenous kids in court," he continued. "And, it remains unbroken as long as Indigenous Kids continue to be forcefully removed from their communities."

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau released a statement earlier in the day on Thursday, June 24. Trudeau said he was saddened to learn about the discovery. "My heart breaks for the Cowessess First Nation, and for all Indigenous communities across Canada," he wrote.

Trudeau's statement concluded with a pledge to "acknowledge this truth, learn from our past, and walk the shared path of reconciliation, so we can build a better future." Judging by Singh's message, he did not find the statement to be sufficient.

This means having a complete list of names and contact information of everyone who comes over (no matter how old they are) and holding onto that information for at least a month.
