Call in to speak with the host
There is a holocaust that you have never heard of in a place you would never guess. Canada. You see, for deacdes there was a slient holcaust going on in Canada, one that involved taking away the children of the indians (in other words, the natives) to "Indian Schools" far away from their home. The vast majority of them never made it home. It is estimated that over a million were killed, mostly while going to these "religous" schools.
To discuss this we will have Kevin Annett (http://itccs.org).
