TORONTO (AP) — A Canadian Cabinet minister says the Pope needs to issue a formal apology for the role the Catholic Church played in Canada’s residential school system, days after the remains of 215 children were located at what was once Canada’s largest such school. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government also pledged again to support efforts to find more unmarked graves at former residential schools for Indigenous students – institutions that held Indigenous children taken from families across the nation.  Chief Rosanne Casimir of the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc First Nation in British Columbia has said the remains of 215 children were confirmed last month at the school in Kamloops, British Columbia, with the help of ground-penetrating radar.
