In 2021, the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation band in Kamloops, British Columbia, put out a press release claiming that through the use of ground penetrating radar, the remains of 215 children who were students of the Kamloops Indian Residential School were discovered.
That claim, which sparked nationwide outrage, inspired this historic visit from the Pope, who hopes to take steps forward with Indigenous peoples to bring about healing and reconciliation.
So, Rebel News has reporters across the country covering his visit.
