50,000 children died in residential schools through Canada between 1800-1900s at the hands of Catholic, anglican, and united officials with the help and aid of the Canadian gov't . Germ warfare was used upon the first nations children in an attempt to destroy a nation. Genocide is still widely practised by our current Gov't . Stephen Harper has just recently retracted his apology to the first nation people by stating recently at a g8 summit that Canada has no history of colonialsm. Interesting enough is the fact that they by law according to the current indian act innoculating on reserve first nation people to the H1n1 flu virus. Also it is an attempt to rid off the first nation people, as we are used as guinea pigs to their vaccines. History repeats itself and if we look back we know this is not the first time.
