Indigenous children, pictured in this undated photo at the former Metlakatla Indian Residential School in British Columbia. The horrific discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves of Indigenous Canadian children on properties of schools funded by the Government of Canada and administered by Christian churches has rightfully shocked Canadians. The discovery becomes especially egregious when one realizes that the very laws that facilitated this atrocity remain part of the Criminal Code of Canada, despite many internal and external efforts to repeal the offending section.

Guided by a public mandate letter, Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr claims he has addressed four of the 15 objectives required by the prime minister. The Hill Times photographs by Jake Wright
