Hey there, time traveller!

It's the slightly dishevelled-looking Dr. John Milloy, the professor tasked with creating an archive of residential school history for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
He gave a bushwacker of an interview to the Trent student newspaper in which he was brutally candid about the challenges of figuring out how many kids were in the schools, what happened to them, where they're buried. He also took the churches to task for hoarding incriminating documents.
Problem is, his words (some which started with F) damaged delicate relations with the churches, and Justice Murray Sinclair has been forced to apologize on behalf of the TRC.
But that kind of bluntness is so refreshing in these days of euphemisms and poll-tested messaging. And, I learned more from Milloy about the challenges of dealing with the hazy history of the residential schools than from any other thing I've read.
