The apology needs to come from the top to give it the value indigenous people deserve

of course the papacy had nothing to do with the related policies or their implementation... and, again: The Canadian Catholic Church did not have a collective role in the residential schools; decisions were often made by individual dioceses and orders. Individual bishops did apologize, following the apology example of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate - the order in charge of the largest number of the residential schools.

I'm not surprised to see you trot out a couple of underlings to take the pressure off the top of the church - it reflects the same style of political and institutional accountability that you normally champion and defend.

p i s s off! Your nonsensical "underlings" designation ignores the positioning and role of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. By the by, I must have missed you calling out the United Church... and the Archbishop of Canterbury no less!
