So remember how in the Summer of 2021 the Canadian government purported to discover "mass grave" sites from Church-State run Canadian boarding schools?

And as a result "emotionally hurt" individuals burned down dozens of Churches in Canada? Including some Native American convert Churches and a Vietnamese Church? Along with that being encouraged by people like Harsha Walia, the executive director of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association?

All based on nothing.

The British Columbia Coroner's Office made the statement on "mass grave sites" in Summer of 2021. According to preliminary "ground-pentrating radar findings", areas which looked like mass grave sites were discovered. The findings were only preliminary, and the "probable gravesites" could not be confirmed until excavations were done.

It's been 7 months and there have been no reports of any corpses being found in these "probable mass gravesites".

Recently, Professor Jacques Rouillard published a detailed essay in the Dorchester Review. In it, he analyzes the evidence of what was found. While children did die of sickness like influenza and yellow fever - there is no evidence of any kind of conspiracy, "mass unmarked graves", or parents who were "never informed" of their child's death. When children died, the government often refused to pay to transport the corpses, and poorer indigenous families couldn't afford that. As such, they were buried at the school cemetaries.

NOW, there have been a large amounts of "unmarked graves" - individual buried graves without markings. But the policy of these boarding schools was to make grave markings out of wood, and over the years they naturally decayed.

It seems what happened is that Liberal journalists misinterpreted the above information - individual unmarked graves - to indicate hundreds of corpses found at "mass grave sites", and through the "quality control feedback loop", various media outlets copied and pasted this information because it all stemmed from "reputable sources".

When the masses learn to stop living by the media, the world will be a much chiller place. That applies to media of all slants.

Oh. Ok.

Guess the Canadian President owes a public apology to Pope Francis.
