According to a Canadian University Indigenous Foundations report, the term residential schools refers to an extensive education system set up by the Canadian government and administered by Churches that had the “nominal objective of educating Indigenous children.”
“Damaging and equally explicit objectives of indoctrinating them into Euro-Canadian and Christian ways of living” was considered a primary goal.
When researching the topic of persecution of Aboriginals in Canada, it is to be noted how most studies reference dual responsibility on the part of both government and the church. In general terms, Canadian media omit government and hold the church entirely culpable.
In uncovering bodies of 215 Aboriginal children found beneath Canadian residential schools, a curious omission is found. Establishment media are going all-out on the responsibility of the Catholic Church, while neglecting government’s role in the historic oppression of Indigenous peoples.
Between church and state, government held jurisdiction over these schools. Why is this truism being omitted from contemporary media narrative? Can it be that media–as directed by government– want all responsibility directed toward the Christian church?
Turning toward personal culpability, major curiosities are discovered.
“With the passage of the British North America Act in 1867, and the implementation of the Indian Act (1876), the government was required to provide Indigenous youth with an education and to assimilate them into Canadian society. The government collaborated with Christian missionaries to encourage religious conversion.”
“From the 1890s until the 1950s, the government tried constantly to shift the burden of the system onto the Churches.”
Enough of anecdotal evidence. Historical responsibility of the Liberal Party, as well as the Conservative Party, is factual. Just not for CBC, CTV, Globe & Mail, National Post or Toronto Star.
Media reporting on residential schools deaths contain little if any reference to government responsibility. With the Pope in Canada as we speak, media focus has been monolithic. The Pontiff is here to apologize. It’s all the press speak of. Are serious students of history supposed to view this as coincidence? Is it not another notch in the belt of perpetual Christian-bashing on the part of media?
Who pays these people, anyway? That would be the Liberal Government of Canada. Looks to CAP like they both want the same things. A giant coincidence, is it?
The greatest Christian-bashers in the world are communist societies and fundamentalist Islamic governments. Canada’s prime minister and our mainstream media join them in ideological warfare.
Here’s an enlightening piece of information: From 1969 to 1978, control and maintenance of residential schools was in the hands the federal government of Canada.
The Liberal Party was the ruling government from 1968 to 1979. The prime minister throughout this eleven-year period was Pierre Trudeau.
What a fascinating discovery. On this basis, it’s fair to state that the prime minister most responsible for the residential school debacle is Pierre Trudeau.
Degree to which this theory has been presented within contemporary media? The correct answer is no degree at all. Why not? Are mainstream media interested in presenting historical truth, or are they indulging in a game of deception based on ulterior motives?
CAP’s opinion is that our ruling government and Canadian media function as a political team. On this basis, responsibility for deaths within residential schools is off-loaded to the Church, while government remain free of condemnation.
Is a covert war being waged on the Christian faith in Canada? Media’s “selective amnesia” plays into this theory. Christian-Canadians have been down-in-the-mouth since the day Justin Trudeau attained office.
Readers may wonder what all this is about. Much of it seems strange and unclear. That is, unless there is a “greater goal” at play. It comes in the form of what can be called a “Great Reset” agenda. One thing students of history will attest to– Christianity and Communism do not mix.
If Canada is being walked down a path for transition to a socialist state, it makes sense that an attack upon Christianity could be part of process. To confirm, take a look at the modern history of China. Justin Trudeau certainly has, as did father Pierre Trudeau before him. Is all this indicative of a transformative agenda at work within society?
Canadian media are today in the “Liberal Government Protection Industry.” Their assigned task being to insulate the Liberal Party from all admonishment regarding historical persecution of Aboriginals.
