June 28, 2021
BRITISH COLUMBIA, Canada - Two more Catholic churches burned down in western Canada early Saturday. The churches were located near Indigenous communities at St. Ann's Church and Chopaka Church, which are located within an hour of each other in British Columbia.
The burnings came less than a week after two other Catholic churches in British Columbia burned down on Monday, which was National Indigenous Day in Canada.
The Chopaka Church is located on Lower Similkameen land, near the U.S. border, and the fire reportedly began at around 4 a.m.
