Letter: Whistleblower faces legal persecution
Letter to the editor. File

Dear editor:

I urge every Canadian to read the overview summary of events by a very sincere clerical whistleblower, whose research into the horrors of the Canadian residential schools led to his persecution by Canadian legal authorities.

The story of former United Church minister Kevin Annett is documented online at canadiangenocide.nativeweb.org.

If you thought this kind of thing could not happen in Canada the Good, think again.

Governments and the churches involved acted like something out of the medieval era Inquisition, seeking to shut people up summarily, under threat of actual jail.

As well, crimes that I have not seen cited in other sources are highlighted by Annette and it is unbelievable to me that they happened in Canada.

The acts were so inhuman and animalistic that it is no wonder the perpetrators decades later want to suppress all mention of them and are taking people to court if they speak up.

The additional factor, of course, is that the so-called Truth and Reconciliation Commission about the residential school genocide was really another way to suppress everything about it by burying it all under a mantle of “forgiveness” and hoping thereby that all fault and criminal responsibility would be ended.

These kinds of attempts to evade criminal responsibility are being made by “beloved” institutions, various levels of government and churches.

This is an open, festering wound on the body Canada.
