...it seems the Conservatives have actively attempted to hide the issue.  In 2009 they declined funding so that bodies could be looked for.  https://globalnews.ca/news/7907424/trc-mass-graves-residential-school-federal-funding/amp/
Neither did the Liberals. The study that found the graves was funded by a provincial grant.

more 2sidenIt hey member wilber! As a backdrop reference: since 2016 the Liberal government has committed more than $50 million towards TRC 'call to action' points.

what's definitive is Harper Conservatives did refuse that linked reference to a TRC request for $1.5M to find mass graves at residential schools. The waldo would be interested in you citing reference (and context) showing the current Liberal government rebuffed a funding request by the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation to support the process/undertaking that relied upon ground-penetrating radar to discover the Kamloops residential school mass grave - thanks in advance.
