48% of non-Aboriginal Canadians blame residential schools for current problems aboriginal people face

 


A new national survey found 48 per cent of non-Aboriginal Canadians see the residential school system as at least partly responsible for the current challenges Aboriginal people face.

That's up from 31 per cent in 2008.

The Environics Institute survey found that two-thirds of non-Aboriginal Canadians had heard or read about the residential school system, compared to 51 per cent eight years ago.
