Halton Indigenous group member speaks out about Pope’s apology
August 5, 2022

“I humbly beg forgiveness for the evil committed by so many Christians against the Indigenous Peoples,” said Francis.
But when an apology goes unaccepted, it makes the invisible more obvious. It reveals how deep the wounds are felt.
