Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne offered a formal apology in the legislature today to residential school survivors. It's part of the province's official response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which concluded children were physically and sexually abused and died in numbers that would not have been tolerated in any school system. Wynne apologized for the policies and practices supported by past Ontario governments and for the harm they caused. (The commission's 94 recommendations included reducing the number of aboriginal children in foster care and granting police greater independence to investigate crimes where government may be an interested party.)
