Priest under fire for comments on Canadian residential schools

CA, 25 Jun 2021
A Mississauga, Ont. priest is facing backlash from his community following comments he made about residential schools and the involvement of the Catholic Church.

Monsignor Owen Keenan told his parish that two thirds of the country blames the church for the tragedies that occurred in residential schools. And then went on to say others would thank the church.

The comments come as the country is in mourning for Indigenous communities. Last month the remains of 215 children were discovered at the former Kamloops residential school in B.C.
