Church scapegoated for tragedies in Canada’s “assimilation schools”

About twenty churches, mostly Catholic, have been subject to arson or vandalised in Canada soon after the discovery of mass children's graves. The causal link is the role played by boarding schools set up by the Canadian government in the 19th century to assimilate indigenous tribes. Yet Indian schoolchildren often died of disease and hunger in the absence of government aid. Today, Prime Minister Trudeau is attacking the Church in an attempt to make the state forget its own sins.
