CRESTON, British Columbia - For the third time in less than two months, unmarked graves have been discovered at another Canadian residential school for Indigenous children.

The Lower Kootenay Band of the Ktunaxa Nation announced Wednesday that 182 unmarked graves were discovered using ground-penetrating radar near the former St. Eugene's Mission School in Cranbrook, British Columbia.

The process was conducted in 2020 and reports of the findings were just presented to the Lower Kootenay Band, according to a press release.
