City of Kamloops Heartbroken by Discovery

City of Kamloops Heartbroken by Discovery

May 28, 2021 at 8:53 am  Kamloops, Municipal, News

The City of Kamloops sends its deepest sympathies to the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc (TteS) and surrounding communities. 

“This is tragic and absolutely devastating,” says Mayor Ken Christian. “We cannot begin to imagine the pain this discovery has caused, but we share your sorrow.”

The dark history of residential schools can never be forgotten. As a community, we must stand together to acknowledge this terrible past and the trauma it effected then and now. It is our responsibility to recognize the truths of this past and support reconciliation efforts.

We hope these young souls can finally rest in peace, though they will never be forgotten.

As always, the City of Kamloops stands with our friends and neighbours at TteS and offers our support.
