Charles said he was deeply moved by conversations with survivors who courageously shared their experiences of the schools during the three-day tour.
“I want to acknowledge their suffering and to say how much our hearts go out to them and their families,” Charles said Thursday night in Yellowknife in front of hundreds of people.
