We are gathered here today to talk about an urgent matter that has happened in the past and we must apologize for this. This matter is about the indigenous people and their kids that had to suffer through the residential schools. Us Canadians back then tried to assimilate their culture and force them to learn ours. They were also physically and sexually abused by the people in the residential schools. We as Canadians should learn from our past and support and respect all indigenous people. I will personally never disrespect an indigenous person or anyone in that matter.
