 Canadian Prime Minister Asks Pope Francis to Issue an Apology after 715 More Graves of Indigenous Children Are Found

After 751 additional unmarked graves of indigenous children were found at the site of a former Roman Catholic-run residential school used to assimilate indigenous people, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau implored Pope Francis to visit Canada and issue an apology on behalf of the church.

“I have spoken personally directly with His Holiness Pope Francis to press upon him how important it is not just that he makes an apology but that he makes an apology to indigenous Canadians on Canadian soil,” Trudeau told reporters on Friday according to The Christian Post.
