Environment committee  You heard me mention a couple of specific communities that we are aware of and have had many discussions with that are actively trying to preserve their schools. The Brantford community with the “mush hole”, Long Plain First Nation, the Muskowekwan First Nation—they're very passi

Environment committee  We haven't had a full engagement with all the others, but we have to recognize, too, that we start to get down in terms of quality. We can start with the St. Eugene example, and Algoma and Assiniboia. There are three schools right there that are sort of preserved and not being

Environment committee  Yes, it was $79,000. The building itself was quite derelict. It was probably a public safety hazard. So what do we do? Do we buy it and then put a big chain-link fence around it and say nobody can visit it because it's dangerous? That is where we need a strategy and we really h

Environment committee  We have to recognize is that these are sites of conscience. We hold on to things because we need to do certain ceremonies. In some ways, while it's not a complete parallel, we even have cemeteries so we can go and visit a loved one or someone we've said goodbye to. We will be tr

Environment committee  It's a very important question. The commission was many things, but at its heart what it did was give a microphone to survivors of the residential schools. We gave the microphone to 7,000 survivors across the country. That's how many statements we recorded. It was the largest en

Environment committee  We have to understand the difference between preservation and commemoration. We absolutely have to commemorate every single residential school in this country. That needs to be a national initiative. In terms of preservation, we have not preserved every single residential schoo

Environment committee  That's a good question. I don't really know if there is a difference between the two. Consider for example children who have disappeared. That's going to take quite a long time, in order to properly honour that project. That's not a one-year project. It's going to require a lot

Environment committee  I might just, in opening, say a couple of things about that. I think in regard to the school cemeteries and the missing children work, I believe that there will be individuals who see the value in doing that work and want to participate and want to lend a helping hand. I think we

Ry Moran

Environment committee  That's an excellent question. I think there is a really strong opportunity for a four-way partnership on this, with individuals, businesses, and provincial and federal agencies coming together to ensure...and obviously, indigenous peoples and governments coming together to preser

Ry Moran

Environment committee  Yes, you heard me correctly. Two examples come to mind immediately. I referenced the St. Michael's Indian Residential School at Alert Bay. That school stood over that community in a very dominating way for many years. It was rundown and it was derelict. It became a bit of a safet

September 26th, 2017Committee meeting

Ry Moran

Environment committee  I think what's really important to recognize is that the relationship between communities and the residential schools is very complex and it's going to change between communities. In the example of the St. Michael's school, it's not for me to say whether that was a right or wrong

Ry Moran

Environment committee  Good morning. Thank you for having me here. This is an exceptionally important conversation that we're going to have here, and not only in regard to heritage. What I will be presenting strikes at the very heart of our national identity: what we choose to remember, what we choose

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I'm pleased to say that last week we assembled a group of the researchers from all of the stages of the TRC's Missing Children Project here in Ottawa for an intensive one-day session on what needs to happen next. There are three significant parts of the project we see as necessa

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I don't have the exact number at hand, but it's over 3,000 children. To be honest, we have a lot of work to do still in uncovering and reviewing the records. By virtue of how the records came into the centre, and the massive onslaught and the timing around when these records sho

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  That information exists in certain instances. The TRC, in its initial missing children report, did indicate the nature of death and the reasons for death, but it doesn't exist in all cases. We also find that we don't necessarily have the names of the students in all cases. We hav
