B.C. First Nation says remains of 182 found near former school

graves

B.C 's Lower Kootenay Band says ground-penetrating radar has found 182 human remains in unmarked graves close to a former residential school site.

Today's announcement follows similar discoveries in Kamloops, B-C and the Cowessess First Nation in Saskatchewan.

The federal government and several provinces have vowed to help First Nations search for unmarked graves and honour the children who were buried anonymously, in many cases without their families being informed.
