In the matter of 70,000 Day School Student Survivors:
"Joan Jack, the lawyer representing day school survivors, says those who went home should be treated the same as students who were kept in residence away from their families.
"Whether you went to a school where you slept at night or you went home at night is not relevant to you ending up not being able to speak your language, feeling ashamed of who you are, being abused spiritually," she says.
People want to be able to feel that they belong here, that this is our coutry. We are the indigenous people of this country and Canada is slowly waking up to that fact." : The Star : August 5th, 2009
