'We are truly sorry': Trudeau exonerates Tsilhqot'in chiefs hanged in 1864

More than 150 years after six B.C. First Nations chiefs were hanged by colonial authorities, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has apologized and absolved the Tsilhqot'in leaders of any wrongdoing.

"Today, we come together in the presence of the Tsilhqot'in chiefs, to fully acknowledge the actions of past governments, committed against the Tsilhqot'in people, and to express the government of Canada's profound regret for those actions," Trudeau said.
