Residential school being torn down

BC’s Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation says a former residential school being demolished in Alert Bay is a reminder of a dark time in history.

John Rustad says St. Michael’s Indian Residential School might be getting torn down, but what happened there can never be changed or forgotten.

Residential school survivors gathered at the school with representatives from the Anglican Church and political leaders in a ceremony to mark the building’s demolition today.

The Anglican church-operated school closed in the 1970s.
