Residential Schools whistleblower honoured in Ottawa

From Global News.

A piece of advice that was widely ignored a century ago is now getting the recognition it deserves.

Dr. Peter Bryce was ignored with years of dismissals from the department of Indian Affairs.

Now, he’s being honoured at the Ottawa publishing house that released his work.
