Kenney speechwriter under fire for 2013 essay calling residential schools a 'bogus genocide story'

Post by Mark Fournier »

EDMONTON — Jason Kenney’s speechwriter has found himself embroiled in controversy over an article written in 2013 that declared Canada’s residential schools a “bogus genocide story.” The column, which Paul Bunner — who was also Stephen Harper’s speechwriter between 2006 and 2009 — wrote for the publication C2C Journal, said the media, the academy and politicians need to question the “residential schools orthodoxy” and recognize those who created and operated the schools were “motivated by an altruistic desire to help a colonization-shattered people adapt to their new reality.”

Yet amazingly, world famous Canadian architect Douglas Cardinal (Born Calgary, raised Red Deer St. Josephs residential school) has praised his residential upbringing for his values, education and life goals. St. Mary's Catholic Church in Red Deer is one of his designs. So is St. Albert Centre. They're all across the country and around the world. He's now based on POTawa.

Let's see - rules, expectations, responsibility, education, setting goals. What a filthy genocide.

If rules, expectations, responsibility, education and setting goals are genocide then who do my sister and I pursue for damages? Obviously we were abused, as were everyone we knew growing up. Or, could it be we came from a middle income suburban home that had rules, expectations and responsibilities? Where are our millions?

This pretend country is pathetic.
