Alert Bay-School Demolition-Healing

So wonderful to hear that this very significant event will help in the healing process of so many beautiful little souls that were preyed upon by evil people when they were forcibly taken from their families. 

  “From the 1870s to 1996, more than 150,000 Aboriginal children in Canada were removed from their homes and placed in government-funded, church-run schools like St. Michael’s.”

Rise UP Together!

"VANCOUVER – A special ceremony was held on Wednesday to mark the demolition of St. Michael’s Indian Residential School in Alert Bay. The school was operated by the Anglican Church from 1930 to 1975 and thousands of aboriginal people say they faced physical and sexual abuse there."
