Rape and murder in Canadian boarding schools; thousands died.

Thousands of girls and boys were raped and tortured, and many were murdered, in Canada's aboriginal boarding schools. (CANADA )

In Canada, up until 1985, Christian churches ran around 100 boarding schools for aboriginal children.

Between 100,000 and 200,000 children were forced to attend these boarding schools. (Canada probes TB 'genocide' in church-run schools - health - 05 ...)

Reportedly, around 50,000 aboriginal children died in these schools.


"A 2001 report by the Truth Commission into Genocide in Canada documents the responsibility of the Roman Catholic Church, the United Church of Canada, the Anglican Church of Canada, and the federal government in the deaths of more than 50,000 Native children in the Canadian residential school system.

"The report says church officials killed children by beating, poisoning, electric shock, starvation, prolonged exposure to sub-zero cold while naked, and medical experimentation, including the removal of organs and radiation exposure." - CANADA

On 1 January 2008, the Canadian government's 'Truth and Reconciliation Commission' head, Bob Watts, stated that criminal acts had gone on in the schools, accounting for the deaths of 'unknown' numbers of children. (Epoch Times Move to Investigate Residential School Deaths ...)


Children suffered 'beatings, electric shocks, forced sterilization, medical experimentation, starvation, rape as well as various other forms of sexual abuse, and murder..... Some spoke of young girls becoming pregnant as a result of rape, or nuns becoming pregnant after sexually abusing boys...'

Reportedly ( Genocide in Canada ):

1. The United Church provided aboriginal children from its schools for drug-testing, radiation experiments and CIA mind control programs.

2. The United Church may have knowledge of a pedophile ring, associated with The Vancouver Club, which involves United Church clergy, lawyers and judges.

Documentary filmmaker Kevin Annett estimates there are at least six burial sites at former British Columbia residential schools run by the Catholic Church. (Natives want children's remains returned)

According to Annett: "We know that there's mass graves behind the school in Port Alberni, in Alert Bay, in Mission, right next to the grounds of the Mission Folk Fest."

Annett said he has heard many stories of children who simply disappeared from the more than 100 residential schools for aboriginal children that operated in Canada from the 1870s to the early 1980s.

Former students have told Annett they helped with burials.

Many died from tuberculosis, violence and abuse.

According to Annett: "It's about genocide. It's about murder.... If you do a conservative estimate, then you are talking at least 50,000 children across Canada over a century."

“The priests dug up the secret gravesite in a real hurry around 1972, when the school closed. No-one was allowed to watch them dig up those remains.

"I think it’s because that was a specially secret graveyard where the bodies of the pregnant girls were buried.

"Some of the girls who got pregnant from the priests were actually killed because they threatened to talk.

"They were sometimes shipped out and sometimes just disappeared. We weren’t allowed to talk about this.” (Testimony of Arnold Sylvester to Kevin Annett, Duncan, BC, August 13, 1998). ( CANADA )

A year ago, Bill Curry and Karen Howlett reported the Globe and Mail’s independent examination of documents in the government’s own records in the National Archives:

" The myth of Canada's residential schools for native children holds that the schools had a paternalistic purpose …That myth may at last fall when Canadians take a close look at the abysmally high death rates among children, from tuberculosis and other causes, at the schools. They did not die in one great epidemic; they died over many years -- at least 40 -- as the federal government ignored warnings from its own medical advisers."
