Cash for residential schools a temporary fix

The Province

Friday, November 25, 2005

For years, First Nations people in Canada have endured a silent pain. A pain that no one can possibly understand unless you have been there.

The federal government's agreement to compensate those who attended residential school shows a little more understanding to why we have so many problems in modern society.

Money is the only means by which modern-day government can try to deal with the pain and suffering of those lost in the cities, homes and their own cultures.

The sad reality is the products and services that the money will provide will be temporary.
