Carey Newman  Victoria, BC


On May 25th, 2017, we will be appearing before the Supreme Court of Canada to advocate for the preservation of the IAP records, which are the largest collection of first hand accounts of residential schools. These records are due to be destroyed in 15 years.

In order to appear at the Supreme Court, we must raise $50,000 by May 25th 2017 to cover the cost of legal fees.

That is so sad that the records will be destroyed. They need to keep those records for people to study and to make sure that such horrible things can never ever happen again to any child or person. Also they are needed for ongoing legal battles etc.
