On behalf of our Vancouver Island University Faculty Association members, we express our sorrow and condolences to all of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada, and especially the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc First Nation; we do so for the tragic deaths of 215 children whose remains were discovered on the Kamloops Indian Residential School site.

As educators, we understand the solemn obligation we have when it comes to contributing towards healing this national wound.
