Search for burial sites underway at former Shubenacadie residential school

CA, 06 Jun 2021
After the remains of 215 Indigenous children were found in Kamloops, B.C., places like Nova Scotia have started investigations and a search of the former Shubenacadie residential school site is now underway.

It was demolished in 1986, and remains a place of trauma for the Mi’kmaw First Nation. Anthropologist Jonathan Fowler is working with a team investigating the site.

They’re using the same ground-penetrating radar survey technology that helped the search in B.C.

As Jesse Thomas reports, there’s a sense of urgency to get the search started and done to the highest standard.
