The Unmarked Graves Boondoggle


Canada Indian Residential Schools unmarked graves boondoggle hysteria politicization accusations smearing calumny

Ottawa's 'Special Interlocutor for Missing Children' heads a growing empire but so far she has identified not a single unmarked grave that is actually a grave of a named 'missing' child.

ON JUNE 8, 2022 THE federal government appointed Kimberly Murray as Independent Special Interlocutor for Missing Children and Unmarked Graves and Burial Sites associated with Indian Residential Schools. An indigenous activist, Murray was Executive Director of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission from 2010 to 2015. At the time of her appointment as Special Interlocutor, she was “Executive Lead for the newly created Survivors’ Secretariat at the Six Nations of the Grand River, working to recover the missing children and unmarked burials at the Mohawk Institute.”

Although the statute under which her appointment was made has never been identified, Murray’s job description as Special Interlocutor is very specific:

The Special Interlocutor will work closely and collaboratively with Indigenous leaders, communities, Survivors, families and experts to identify needed measures and recommend a new federal legal framework to ensure the respectful and culturally appropriate treatment and protection of unmarked graves and burial sites of children at former residential schools.

Murray has been specifically tasked with developing a new federal legal framework for protection of unmarked graves of children of former residential schools.

Whether this is a constitutionally valid job description is open to question since it appears to delegate to her the function of the legislative branch of government.  (more...)
