According to a memo from a senior head inside the notorious Indian & Northern Affairs department of the Government of Canada: Between 1954 and 1956, "Document Destruction Teams" were established as a result of a policy that called for the destruction of all paperwork so that in the future Canada could not be held accountable for it's actions it committed against Native people.
"There was a general federal government policy to destroy many government files and ... there was a very high level of records destruction activity that occurred between 1936 and 1956," said the November 2006 report authored by Edward G. Sadowski, a professor in the law and politics department at Ontario's Algoma University College.
what was destroyed and why? they were key residential documents such as reports, diaries, evidence that was purposely destroyed in attempts to cover up cultural genocide. And this is just the tip of the Iceberg.
The Residential School system was created by Canada in an attempt to assimilate Native People. Church's received Canada's money to open up homes and school's across Canada that saw native children scooped from their parents and forced to live in places were they were assaulted, raped, tortured, they could not speak their language, they were beaten for the littlest of things, and the list would go for miles of the atrocities committed against natives since the occupation started 500 hundred years ago in North America.
This is not only apart of Canada's History which was not so long ago, but also the United States. Even today they don't kill native people but use policy to do such.
"There was an intentional effort to hide the evidence and destroy the evidence to protect themselves in the future," said Saskatchewan Liberal MP Gary Merasty, former Grand Chief of the Prince Albert Grand Council.
"They knew very well what they were doing. It was cultural genocide."
Look at the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and see for yourself that Canada and the United States has committed genocide.
