89.9 million dollars. That’s how much money the federal government has provided for support, research, and field investigations for searching former residential school properties attached to claims of having unmarked graves.
96 churches. That’s how many Canadian churches have been burnt and/or vandalized since one of the most prominent unmarked grave claims was made back in 2021.
The claim: That the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation had discovered the remains of 215 children, as young as six years old, in unmarked graves at the former Kamloops Indian Residential school.
A claim that has since been proven to be false. To date, not a single body has been discovered in an unmarked grave on the property, and the band government has failed to excavate or allow the RCMP or the BC Coroners office to investigate the alleged discovery.
If there was ever a sign that every MP in this house gets too much tax-payer dollars it’s this unified willful ignorance.— Drea Humphrey - Prepping and Politics (@DreaHumphrey) June 22, 2023

Yet despite all of the above, and the ongoing church attacks that can often be linked to such unproven claims, the federal government, much like leftist media, has failed to inform Canadians about the truth regarding the matter, even if that truth could potentially lessen hateful attacks against Christian places of worship.
That’s why when I attended Conservative Party Leader, Pierre Poilievre’s press conference, I asked him about exactly that, and unlike Prime Minister Trudeau, whose security detail tossed me aside like a ragdoll for posing a question about burning churches, Mr. Poilievre actually answered.
A full investigation into unmarked graves at former residential schools like in Kamloops, BC should be held, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre tells Rebel News' Drea Humphrey.— Drea Humphrey - Prepping and Politics (@DreaHumphrey) January 22, 2024
"Canadians deserve to know the truth," he says.

“We should provide the resources to allow for a full investigation into the potential remains at residential schools,” said Poilievre, adding that “Canadians deserve to know the truth.”
The statement aligns with one of the demands in the “Truth and Reconciliation Commission's report,” with Canadians concerned that some of the unmarked grave claims are false and inflaming hatred towards Christians.
“We need to move forward in a country that is free so that every single Canadian, whether their ancestry goes back tens of thousands of years or whether they have been here for 10 days, has the freedom to live their life in prosperity and happiness,” said Poilievre.
“Conservatives will always stand in favour of historical accuracy,” he added.
Poilievre also stated that there is no excuse for burning churches, adding that under the Trudeau government, “we have seen more violence directed against religious groups than we have ever seen in Canadian history.”
