Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Residential School Survivors Call for an End to Arson Attacks on Churches (CBC News)

Residential school survivors call for an end to arson attacks on churches’Whoever is doing this, you’re going to wake up a very ugly, evil spirit in this country,’ survivor warns.

A group of residential school survivors is calling for an end to arson attacks on churches after several Catholic and Anglican churches were vandalized or damaged by fire following the reported discovery of unmarked graves at former residential school sites in British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

During a press conference today, residential school survivor Jessie Malcolm condemned the vandalism while fighting back tears.

“It’s not going to bring back anybody,” she said.

Jenn Allan-Riley, a Sixties Scoop survivor and the daughter of a residential school survivor, said the acts of vandalism are sowing discord between Indigenous people and the rest of Canada.

“Burning down churches is not in solidarity with us Indigenous people,” Allan-Riley told the press conference.

“Whoever is doing this, you’re going to wake up a very ugly, evil spirit in this country,” she said.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission included a demand for a formal apology from the Catholic Church for its role in running residential schools among the “calls to action” in its final report.

While the church has yet to issue such an apology, Indigenous leaders are set to meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican in December.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau again condemned the attacks on churches during a press conference earlier today.

“It is a shame and indeed it is something that will prevent people who will seek solace in times of grief from being able to visit their own places of worship when they’ve been vandalized or burned,” Trudeau said.

“It is not the way forward.

Trudeau also condemned the toppling of two statues — one of Queen Victoria and one of Queen Elizabeth II — on the grounds of the Manitoba Legislature on Thursday.

“I fully understand the anger … and the grief that so many people are feeling,” he said when asked about the statues.

“But we need to move forward as a community, we need to listen to that anger, to that grief, and make reflections around how we commemorate and honour historical figures, (or) whether we do.”

I knew that these guys could pull through. There’s something about Canada that puts people at great unease whenever they’re in a state of internal conflict. It’s instinctive. You watch people drift apart, but afterwards they yank themselves back together, because they instinctively want to get back together. I think I’m being silly. Or maybe Canadians are silly. I don’t know.

In other news, I think I’m going to go for a vaccine shot. I was going to hold out on getting the vaccine, but I don’t really have much of a choice, now that many public + private services will be restricted to only those who are vaccinated. I’m mostly concerned not for myself, but of the possibility of catching this virus and passing it on to others.

Now we have this Delta variant and even a new Lambda variant from Peru, for which the dubious mRNA Pfizer/Moderna vaccines aren’t even effective for.

You wanna know what’s really weird? In the past, I would catch the flu every year in the winter, but in 2019 and 2020, I did not get any flus at all. This social distancing regime actually works. I could be immune to COVID19?

How I wish these governments would have just tackled the COVID19 issue co-operatively from the start, because I have much more confidence in the Russian Sputnik-V vaccine than I do with Pfizer’s experimental jab.
