The devastating discovery of 215 children at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School is a painful reminder of the residential school system’s horrific legacy of violence and abuse. The YWCAs of Alberta mourn these children, and extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the survivors, families and all First Nations people throughout Turtle Island. Without Truth, there can be no Reconciliation. The traumas that communities, families, and survivors of residential schools endured have been passed
