HERITAGE

Hope for truth and reconciliation Alberni First Nations endorse recommendations by T&R commission’s final report, wait for changes “The government should immediately put in place a plan to implement the recommendations.”

MARTIN WISSMATH ALBERNI VALLEY TIMES

Alberni Valley First Nations leaders are responding hopefully to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report. The TRC issued its final report in Ottawa on Tuesday, completing nearly eight years of work since the Indian residential schools settlement with the federal government and four Christian church organizations in 2007. Jeff Cook, hereditary chief of the Huu-ay-aht First Nations and residential school survivor, was in Ottawa for the TRC closing events, which started on Sunday and end today. “We’re here to tell a story, and we have a story to tell,” Cook said. Cook said he agreed with all of the TRC’s 94 recommendations, calling on governments and religious leaders to take action to heal the damage done to aboriginal people as a result of over a century of forced assimilation in residential schools. The TRC calls the abuse suffered by First Nations, Métis and Inuit in the residential school system as a “cultural genocide.” The final report quotes Canada’s first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, stating his view to the House of Commons in 1883, that “Indian children” must conform to

the “habits and modes of thought of white men.” Cook attended the Alberni Indian Residential School from 1956 to 1969. “It wasn’t the best experience from my point of view,” Cook said.

He remembers when the remnants of the Alberni residential school, which closed in 1973, were finally torn down in 2009. “It’s gone now, so [we’ve] got to move on,” he said. Cook said he remains hope-

ful that the recommendations from the commission will be implemented. The Tseshaht First Nation issued a press release Tuesday noting their full endorsement of the TRC’s 94 recommendations, which

include help for aboriginal child welfare, health care, language training and reforms to the criminal justice system. “By calling for efforts to bring back aboriginal languages and establish healing centres, the TRC is addressing the effects of residential schools,” said Tseshaht chief councillor Hugh Braker. “By calling for residential school effects to be added to school curriculums and by calling for Canada to adopt the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples the TRC is confronting the need for Reconciliation. “The TRC report and recommendations are measured, wide ranging, constructive and, ultimately, aimed at healing and reconciliation,” Braker noted. “The government should immediately put in place a plan to implement the recommendations.” Martin.Wissmath@avtimes.net

N

o longer considered Canada’s Worst Place to Live by MoneySense magazine, Port Alberni is ranked 207 of 209 in this year’s report. The 2014 last-place ranking by the magazine did not to discourage all residents. Instead, it started a movement to promote the community’s assets. The grassroots movement from one person’s Facebook status turned into an internationally-recognized awareness campaign. Ben West, former Port Alberni resident, now lives in Vancouver, but was shocked when he learned of the magazine’s list. His Facebook comment, typed out of anger, led to a satirical page dedicated to Port Alberni. His Worst Place to Live page grew, posts were shared and recognition gained at national and international levels. That, West concludes, is the real measure of what makes a community the best place to live.

“Regardless [of placing], I really do think we have moved forward in a positive way.” Kama Money, community advocate

“What people actually enjoy are the quality of life, affordability and geographic location,” West said. “You would be hard-pressed to find such amazing features like the mountains and lakes we have, which make it a really special place.” According to MoneySense, cities are ranked based on attributes that can be measured and are compared overall and against cities and towns of similar size. Divided into 20 categories, some of the attributes judged were population growth, household income, housing and unemployment rates. This year eight cities, including Comox, were added to the list. Kama Money, who, along with West and technology-based

MONEY

entrepreneur, Tashia Potter, has been driven to show the world what Port Alberni has to offer, “Regardless [of placing], I really do think we have moved forward in a positive way,” Money said. She said last year’s title of Worst Place to Live created a community-wide rallying of support. “Sometimes you have to feel anger and frustration before you commit yourself to making change,” Money said.

As a result, the three turned it around and created the Heart of Vancouver Island tag line, social media campaign and related marketing material. “Locals have taken it on and taken ownership,” Money said. “The City and regional district have also both embraced it wholeheartedly. It is not just about the three of us. “The local and international communities are noticing and I am excited about what opportunities we will have this year and in the years to come. It won’t happen overnight.” Although West believes the comparisons are skewed and does not adequately represent quality of life, he was happy to see the community rise from the bottom. “There’s still work to be done,” he said. “But it was a little bitter-sweet to lose the crown of the Worst Place to Live.” Kristi.Dobson@avtimes.net » We want to hear from you.

You’re newly graduated, with a great job and a solid future in sight – and you’re making your own money for the first time. You could spend some of it on a great vacation, a new car … or you could start investing in your retirement portfolio. When you’re a young Canadian strapped for cash, with student loans to pay off and lots of new lifestyle expenses, it’s difficult to save for the future. But the experts, and the life experiences of many investors, tell us that without a doubt, starting young is the key to investing successfully for retirement. Even if you start small, start now – because the longer you are in the markets, the more your savings will grow over time. Check out this example: • Mary invests $2,000 at the beginning of each year between ages 21 and 29, for a total of $18,000 over nine years. Assuming a pre-tax return of 7 per cent, by age 65, she will have $292,828 in pre-tax savings. • Lynn also invests $2,000 at the beginning of each year with the same pre-tax returns but starts at age 30. To get near Mary’s savings total of $292,828, Lynn will need to invest nearly four times as much -- $70,000 over 35 years.

Liz Gaudet The Happy Life Project And here are some investing tips to get you going: • Are you investing to buy a house or for retirement? Knowing where your money is going will help you define how to invest. • Do your research. You need to be comfortable with your investments and the best way to do that is to become knowledgeable. • Talk to a financial planner. Even if you only have a little money to invest, a financial planner will be happy to help you. It’s in their interest to establish a relationship with young investors who will be clients for a long time. For your best financial outcome, start investing early and develop good financial habits. That way, you’ll have more options for how you want to live your life from here to retirement… and beyond. » Liz Gaudet is a consultant with Investors Group Financial Services Inc. in Port Alberni.

hen Jenn Haddock moved to Port Alberni in 2011 from Powell River, the former Toronto resident was impressed with her new surroundings. She purchased a home because of the view of the Alberni Inlet. Her intent was to rent the house out, but found it was smarter to move right in. With an interest in natural food, health and environmental protection, Haddock soon opened Jenny’s Fine Foods, Gifts and Eclectica on Kingsway Avenue near Harbour Quay. The shop expanded to the Visitors Centre but she recently closed the storefront to pursue a new venture. Along with a mobile service of her specialty and organic products, she has opened a bed and breakfast. “The store came about as a need in the community and I can still offer it through the mobile service while running the B&B,” Haddock said. Jenny’s B&B, Garden Nook and Mobile Artisan Foods & Gifts is run out of her home with a view on First Avenue. When she first purchased it, Haddock envisioned it transformed into accommodations for visitors. She completed several renovations and worked

like to talk to her and ask questions about the area. She is quick to promote Port Alberni as a tourist destination. “I send them to different restaurants, trails or shopping, whatever they want to do,” she said. She also makes sure to stock pamphlets and maps. She also has a regular guest who is not a tourist, but goes away for work and prefers the cosy stay over a hotel. The B&B has distinctive qualities. It is both animal and bike friendly, is open to all ages and lifestyles and offers kayaks to rent. As a proprietor, Haddock is down-to-earth and friendly. She especially likes to share her ideas of urban farming. “People can see that you can grow a bounty on a small lot,” she said. As an organic gardener for 15 years, Haddock said the secret to success is staying on top of pests and using a layering and mulching technique to keep weeds down. As a result of the warm weather, she already has extensive growth, including early strawberries. Haddock is taking bookings for the season for those travelling from abroad or locals who want to enjoy a “staycation.”

Pit bull attack controversy rages on J ust the name is often enough to spark controversy: pit bull. There really isn’t much in the way of middle ground when it comes to these particular pooches. There’s the “they are dangerous fighting beasts” side and then there’s the “they’re big mushbags and this is an ownership issue, not a breed issue” side. The controversy hit Nanaimo last week. A city woman’s 13-year-old Maltese poodle cross ‘Rosie’ died following an unfortunate encounter with a pit bull. The woman was out in a residential neighbourhood, walking her two small dogs, which were not on a leash.

At the same time, area residents were warning parents to take their children off the street, because a dog (a pit bull) with a “reputation for aggression” toward other animals was on the loose. Witnesses said the big dog appeared and attacked. Despite the efforts of a neighbouring resident, Rosie could not be saved. The pit bull was taken to the city animal shelter. Const. Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP said the investigation continues and no charges are being considered at this time. So is this a case of a bad breed? It it an ownership issue? Or in this case, is it simply bad luck? Understandably, this is an emo-

tional issue. Critics are quick to call for increased punitive measures and bans based on the breed of the dogs. “Breed shaming” as the defenders call it. But we’re not of the mind that stricter laws will make any difference. The overall issue is really about owners themselves — not the animals. It’s about responsible ownership and how to better encourage people to be more aware of the risks associated with owning a large and potentially aggressive dog. Leon Davis, Nanaimo SPCA shelter manager, said “there’s no evidence to show pit bulls are generally an unsafe breed.” In the 1980s, Doberman Pin-

schers were associated with “tough guy image,” tarnishing that breed’s reputation, then in the 1990s “it shifted to Rottweilers, then into the 2000s it became pit bulls,” Davis said. He correctly added that any breed can be made aggressive through improper treatment. If you ban one breed, wouldn’t owners who want aggressive dogs just find another breed to parade around? Even small dogs are capable of biting, it’s just no one is scared of them. When you bring animals together, sometimes there are going to be fights. Breed bans are not the answer. Some pit bulls may indeed be dangerous, but most are not. The focus should be on edu-

cation for dog owners, and punishments better geared to ensuring those owners are more responsible. If dogs are judged to be dangerous, through their repeated actions (and regardless of breed), then the onus should be on the owners of those animals. Token fines or putting down the animals will not resonate with this particular group. It’s unfair to paint all pit bulls with the same brush and it is far too easy to criticize a particular breed without exploring the broader context of ownership. The controversy rages on. » We want to hear from you. Send comments on this editorial to letters@avtimes.net

No real representation on ICF board for Parksville

T

he taxpayers of Parksville area effectively have no voice on the board of directors of the Island Corridor Foundation, despite promising the ICF $1 million. The evidence supporting this theory came to light last week during the Regional District of Nanaimo’s board of directors meeting. The RDN board was about to debate a motion that formally asked the ICF to release a consultant’s report on the effectiveness of the proposed repairs to what was historically called the E&N Railway. Too many people, including many with experience and knowledge related to railway operation, have said there’s no way the ICF will be able to get passenger rail service up and running on the Island for $20 million. That’s what the ICF hopes to gather from regional districts and the provincial and federal governments. The ICF

has a commitment for about a third of that funding, all from the five regional districts that

are so-called partners in this venture. Each regional district sends a representative to sit on the ICF board. The RDN’s rep, Nanaimo Mayor Bill McKay, excused himself from the RDN board’s discussion last week. If the RDN’s rep on the ICF board isn’t going to participate in RDN discussions about the ICF, what’s the point of having such a rep? RDN chair Joe Stanhope agreed McKay’s decision not to participate in the discussion last week was odd. Perhaps McKay’s move would be understandable if there was some financial commitment being discussed, Stanhope told us, but that wasn’t the case last week. “Mayor McKay did not have to excuse himself from the information report,” Stanhope told The NEWS. “He’s taking a conservative approach, I’d assume.” Chairman Joe is too nice a

person to say it, but what’s happening here is further indication the ICF wants no scrutiny or input from its supposed partners. Just the million bucks from taxpayers, thank-you very much. The RDN has to pass a formal motion to pry a consultant’s report from the ICF, for crying out loud. We understand why McKay would want to keep the rail service dream alive. If it was real, it would have a positive economic impact for the city he represents. However, when he goes to ICF meetings as the RDN’s rep, he is also representing the taxpayers of Bowser, Qualicum Beach, Nanoose Bay, Errington, Parksville et al. For many reasons, especially ones related to taxpayer money, it’s time to fish or cut bait with the notion of passenger rail service on Vancouver Island. PARKSVILLE QUALICUM BEACH NEWS

Former UFC champion talks at ADSS SUBMITTED FOR THE TIMES

Matt Hughes, a former retired UFC champion, took some time out of developing his hunting show to drop by Alberni District Secondary School to answer questions and show a few wrestling moves to our local Armada Wrestlers. Matt is part of the Trinity Oaks Charity that sponsors outdoor hunting and fishing events for veterans, youth, terminally ill or disable persons. Sean Lingl of Canadian Guide Outfitters Ltd. was Matt’s guide and helped make the event at ADSS happen. U.S. Veteran Charlie Lemon was with Matt and shared some of his experiences being in the military. There was a question and answer period with Matt and Charlie that focused on what skills and mental mindset it takes to be a champion in the UFC. Many of these skills Matt and Charlie directly related to life and success people have after their athletic or military careers.

Matt Hughes then took to the wrestling mats where he worked with some of the Armada wrestling team and demonstrated some his own wrestling moves

FOOTBALL

and some grappling submissions. Matt then posed for a picture and signed some personal pictures as gifts for the kids in attendance.

Head Coach John McDonald summarized the experience for local martial art enthusiasts and the local Armada wrestlers. “Matt and Charlie had similar

messages coming from different backgrounds. Both agreed that success in life was part timing and a whole lot of preparation and hard work. “As the coach of our local wrestling team it is great to hear the same message we are trying to send through the sport of wrestling come from such a prominent figure in sport,” McDonald continued. “It was really nice that Matt took time out of his schedule to spend time with our kids. I was really appreciative of local hunting guide Sean Lingl for helping to make this happen.” The local wrestlers are hard at work now during their fundraising season which includes many service related events in our community. The second week in July will see our wrestlers back on the mats helping out at our elementary school wrestling camp. Alberni’s main camp for wrestler’s grades 6 to 12 will be July 9–12.

Virtanen leads 2015 crop of Raiders recruits SCOTT McKENZIE NANAIMO DAILY NEWS

The Vancouver Island Raiders announced their 2015 recruiting class on Monday, one they hope will bring them back into Canadian junior football’s elite. And as is always important for the Raiders to do so, they kept John Barsby Bulldogs graduates in Nanaimo in what is new head coach Jerome Erdman’s first recruiting class. Cole Virtanen, the Varsity AA provincial defensive player of the year last season for the B.C. champion Bulldogs, leads the way in that class, and officially became a Raider on Monday evening. “I’m just really interested in staying at home and playing on a good football team,” Virtanen said. “They have all the same ideals that we did at Barsby, so winning’s the No. 1 attitude around here. “I had a few walk-on opportunities to a few CIS and NCAA schools, but I decided to stay home for a year and try to play well here first, and hopefully I’ll be able to move on in a few years.” Virtanen, along with high school teammates such as defensive lineman Matt Hill and linebacker/ runningback Trentyn Anderson, will now join former Bulldogs-turned-Raiders such as Dexter Shea and Ryan Dekker. Erdman, having coached collegiately at UBC in the past, knew all about the Barsby program and what its players could do in the Canadian Junior Football League. “They’ve got a great program down there,” Erdman said. “They’re tough, they’re smart, they’ve got a great work ethic, and that’s something that we pride ourselves on being as Raiders, so it’s a natural transition.” On July 25, Erdman will lead the Raiders into a season where they will attempt not to be the first V.I. team to go two seasons without winning a conference championship. Monday was the first day CJFL teams were allowed to sign players and Erdman’s recruiting class will need to be the basis of the Raiders’ efforts to get back to that level.

“We got some great kids from Winnipeg, some great kids from Regina, and even from up north, too, so we’re very happy.” Jerome Erdman, Raiders head coach

“We’ve done a really good job of getting the really good local talent, so I’m very pleased with that,” he said. “We got some great kids from Winnipeg, some great kids from Regina, and even from up north, too, so we’re very happy.” The Raiders do have quality, veteran pieces already in place such as All-Canadian quarterback Liam O’Brien, Dustin Rodriguez, Quinton Bowles, and Shea, among others. And while Erdman said depth was key in signing this season’s crop of recruits, he said he would never expect any of them to walk into starting positions — although they will have the opportunity to. “There’s a few kids that are coming in that will have the opportunity to start and challenge for a starting position,” Erdman said. “I’ll never tell a rookie coming in that he’s going to start, because that’s unfair to the veterans that are here, and I think that’s the wrong way to recruit. “Obviously Cole Virtanen’s not very far away. He might be a starter. We’ll have to wait and see.” For the entire team, getting back to the level of winning championships is the only goal they have in mind. The senior class at Barsby had won three provincial titles in the past four years, and Hill, a key piece of that team’s defence said it was something they wanted to be a part of. “I’ve been coming to Raiders games ever since I was like 10 years old,” he said. “The feeling of home here is a big thing . . . Our goal is a national championship, and that’s it. With the players on this roster, I think we can definitely achieve that.”

Blue Jays, Nationals split doubleheader THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Jordan Zimmermann shut down the highest-scoring team in the majors. Bryce Harper gave him all the support he needed. Zimmermann blanked the Blue Jays for eight innings, Harper hit a go-ahead single off R.A. Dickey and the Washington Nationals ended a three-game losing streak by beating Toronto 2-0 Tuesday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. Zimmermann (5-2) threw a season-high 105 pitches and helped save a struggling bullpen. “He was in command from the first pitch, throwing it where he wanted to,” Nationals manager Matt Willams said. “Early on, he was keeping his pitch count down, which allowed him to go deep.” Harper singled during a two-run fifth against Dickey (2-6). A day after rain postponed the first meeting between the teams since 2012, the game began with only a few dozen fans in the stands. Zimmermann (5-2) gave up six hits, struck out four and walked one to win for the third time in four starts. After Toronto loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, Zimmermann got Russell Martin to ground into a double play. Rather than go for his first complete game since throwing a no-hitter last year on the final day of the regular season, Zimmermann deferred to Washington’s closer. Drew Storen pitched a perfect ninth, earning his 17th save in 18 chances for the NL East leaders. “There was no discussion,” Zimmermann said about returning for the ninth. “That was Drew’s job. He can have it.” Harper’s single gave him 29 RBI in his last 27 games. Ryan Zimmerman added a sacrifice fly later in the inning. Dickey (2-6) gave up eight hits, struck out six and walked one in six innings.

Company says some producers paying MDs THE CANADIAN PRESS

Quebec Premier Jacques Parizeau gestures during his speech to Yes supporters after losing the referendum in Montreal on Oct. 30, 1995. [THE CANADIAN PRESS]

Former Quebec premier Parizeau dies at age 84 THE CANADIAN PRESS

MONTREAL — Jacques Parizeau, the blunt-talking sovereigntist premier whose strategic cunning came close to ripping Quebec out of Canada, has died at the age of 84. “Immense grief tonight,” Parizeau’s wife, Lisette Lapointe, said on her Facebook page in what was the official announcement of Monday’s death. “The man of my life has gone . . . he was surrounded by love. After a titanic fight, hospitalized for five months, facing challenges one after the other with extraordinary courage and determination, he passed away... We are devastated. “We love him and will love him forever.” The blustery, mustachioed Parizeau was premier during the 1995 provincial referendum which saw the federalist No side defeat

sovereigntists by a whisker after a bitter campaign. In a career-ending slag on referendum night, Parizeau blamed “money and the ethnic vote” for the loss and was roundly criticized to the point that he resigned as premier a day later. “That night was a tragedy for him and for us,” Jean-Francois Lisee, one of Parizeau’s key advisers at the time, said in a 2006 interview on the public Tele-Quebec network. “It was brute emotion. (The referendum) was a big step forward but all he saw was his failure to take the next step. And that anger came out.” In an interview in October 2013, Parizeau insisted the infamous remark was not meant to target specific voters — just community organizations. ”The common front of the Italian, Greek and Jewish congresses was politically active in an extra-

ordinary way in the No camp and had formidable success,” Parizeau told Montreal radio station 98.5 FM. ”It was very efficient.” Parizeau, one of the most influential Quebecers of his generation, had never minced words. He was outspoken, sometimes to the point of making his audience cringe, but love him or hate him, there was no question of where Parizeau stood — unabashedly in favour of Quebec sovereignty. “To try to orient one’s life toward having and building one’s country, I think is a very worthwhile purpose,” he said in an interview after the loss. Parizeau hailed from a prominent family in the upscale Montreal suburb of Outremont. His grandfather was the head of the Quebec Chamber of Notaries and his father was a historian and author as well as the president of an insurance company.

TORONTO — A major producer of medical marijuana says doctors and specialized clinics are receiving kickbacks from some licensed pot producers in exchange for sending them patients, a practice the company calls unethical and a violation of professional medical standards. Greg Engel, CEO of Nanaimobased Tilray, said his company recently resigned from the Canadian Medical Cannabis Industry Association (CMCIA) after unsuccessfully pushing for the organization to adopt a code of ethics that would outlaw the practice. The dozen members of the CMCIA were unwilling to sanction such a code because “many were currently participating” in such kickback schemes, he said. Tilray is starting a new industry group, the Canadian Medical Cannabis Council, which will insist on strict adherence to ethical conduct.In a statement from the CMCIA, executive director Neil Belot said the organization agrees on the need for a high level of ethical conduct among producers, but more agreement had not been reached on the wording of such a code. The CMCIA said Tilray’s proposal was not accepted by its board because it could “have had the inadvertent effect of prohibiting members from conducting meaningful research and data collection initiatives,” for which they receive specific compensation from doctors and clinics. The group’s lawyers also advised the board to exercise caution in developing guidelines, due to potential risks associated with Canadian competition law. “Tilray resigned from the association before the matter was fully discussed or resolved,” Belot said. “Instead of continuing to work together on an important issue, Tilray chose to exit the association.”

Engel said his company has never and will never compensate a physician for a referral or for writing a prescription for medical cannabis. Yet the company provided copies of invoices it had received from two doctors, three clinics and two patient aggregator groups that work with health practitioners. The unsolicited bills seek direct payment, most for $50 each, or a percentage of cannabis sales. “Even though we don’t have agreements in place with any physicians, they’ve actually submitted invoices to us for payment,” Engel said from Nanaimo. “Some of these clinics are also asking for fees, anywhere from $150 to $400, for a patient referral to the licensed producer,” he said of the practice that’s begun permeating the fledgling industry. “And then there are a number of patient aggregator groups that are looking to either payments or a percentage of sales for referring patients to them.” The Canadian Medical Association has strict guidelines prohibiting its 80,000-plus members from accepting any type of fee related to prescribing a medical device, pharmaceutical or medicinal marijuana. “The rationale is really fairly straightforward that you shouldn’t be recommending products or services and then have a financial incentive,” said Dr. Jeff Blackmer, the CMA’s vice-president of medical professionalism. Patients should have the assurance that their health-care provider is acting in their best interest — not in the provider’s best “financial” interest, he said. A number of provincial colleges of physicians and surgeons that regulate doctors’ conduct — including those in Ontario and B.C. — also ban acceptance of any fee from pharmaceutical companies or licensed cannabis producers linked to prescriptions.

TRC makes 94 recommendations aimed at residential school healing THE CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A moment of shared emotional catharsis bound survivors of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residential schools Tuesday as their collective ordeal was officially branded a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultural genocideâ&#x20AC;? that tore apart their families and left them to deal with lifelong scars of physical, sexual and emotional abuse. The massive report by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission makes 94 broad recommendations â&#x20AC;&#x201D;everything from greater police independence and reducing the number of aboriginal children in foster care to restrictions on the use of conditional and mandatory minimum sentences. The summary of the report â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the full six-volume collection isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t due out until later this year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is the culmination of six emotional years of extensive study into the church-run, government-funded institutions, which operated for more than 120 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our spirit cannot be broken,â&#x20AC;? commissioner Chief Wilton Littlechild, himself a survivor of

LITTLECHILD

residential school, told a packed meeting room at a downtown Ottawa hotel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have listened very carefully to many courageous individuals in our search for truth ... through pain, tears, joy and sometimes anger, you shared with us what happened. There are still many, many survivors who have not healed enough to come forward with their story, or that are too angry to tell their story â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or worse, there are those who have given up hope.â&#x20AC;? The extent of the abuse endured by survivors has been fully docu-

mented, with plans for those records to soon have a permanent home at a centre at the University of Manitoba. One of the incredibly personal stories documented by the commission includes an account of sexual abuse from Josephine Sutherland, who attended the Fort Albany residential school in Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call for help, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? Sutherland testified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And he did awful things to me, and I was just a little girl ... I was so stunned, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? Justice Murray Sinclair, the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairman, said the experiences of 6,750 survivors who spoke to the commission will now become a â&#x20AC;&#x153;permanent historical archive, never to be forgotten or ignored.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The residential school experience is clearly one of the darkest most troubling chapters in our collective history,â&#x20AC;? Sinclair told the hundreds who gathered to mark the release of the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s findings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The survivors showed great courage, great conviction and

trust to us in sharing their stories,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These were heart-breaking, tragic and shocking accounts of discrimination, deprivation and all manner of physical, sexual, emotional and mental abuse.â&#x20AC;? Sinclair also stressed the need for Canadians to know the horrific history of residential schools. The federal government estimates around 150,000 students attended the institutions. The last school, located outside of Regina, closed in 1996. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The survivors need to know before they leave this earth that people understand what happened and what the schools did to them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The survivors need to know that having been heard and understood that we will act to ensure the repair of damages is done.â&#x20AC;? The recommendations of the commission, borne out of the largest class-action settlement in Canadian history, touch on a host of problems plaguing Aboriginal Peoples, including child welfare, education, justice and health.

Man accused of sex assault THE CANADIAN PRESS

CALGARY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A man has been charged in the sexual assault and assault of two children in foster care at a home in southeast Calgary. Police say an elementary-school-age girl told her teacher in February that a man providing her with foster care had sexually touched her on more than one occasion. She also reported that the same man had assaulted another child in his care.An elementary-school-age boy living in the same house told detectives that he had been physically assaulted and shut in a dark room before being placed outside in winter weather without clothes. Staff Sgt. Melanie Oncescu said Tuesday there were six children in the home â&#x20AC;&#x201D; four foster kids and two biological children Siksika Family Services immediately removed all foster children from the residence upon hearing of the allegations. Police say Fortunato Jinon, 46, is charged with assault, sexual assault and sexual interference with a child under 16 years of age. He is to appear in court July 2. Police say the operators of the home have been suspended.
