Tool of Liberation

Published: August 20, 2012, Author: JayTaber

As David P. Ball reports for the Tyee, indigenous residential school survivors left out of an agreement with the Government of Canada have filed a class action lawsuit for the “intentional infliction of mental distress”. Citing the many abuses endured as part of the Canadian holocaust, the survivors hope the redress of their grievances will eventually enable a reconciliation between Canadian and indigenous peoples. Looking toward the future, Assembly of First Nations chief Shawn Atleo remarked that he hoped to see education turned from a tool of oppression to a tool of liberation.
