Government apologizes to Sons of Freedom children

7 Feb 2024 4:45 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The BC government has formally apologized to Sons of Freedom Doukhobors who were removed from their parents and sent to residential school between 1953-59. The apology, delivered in Castlegar and Grand Forks, comes with a $10 million commitment and will be repeated later this month in the BC legislature. The apology fulfills a recommendation first issued by the BC Ombudsperson's office in 1999.
