What is this you have done?
Both church and state,
conspire to neglect your fate,
The lies we told, the land we stole,
Your children robbed from thee,
Our arrogance, and our ignorance,
how can you bear to be?
True genocide, your truth denied,
Two hundred and fifteen proofs of the lies,
I am ashamed of you.
This is the version of O Canada that I will be singing until the records of the residential schools (both church and government) are released to assist in the locating, identification and commemoration of the children who were murdered and died of disease and neglect, and the remaining actions of the Truth and Reconciliation Reports have been addressed.
