Canada Didn’t Celebrate But Mourned Canada Day. Here’s Why

Canada celebrates its National Canada Day on 1 July every year, the day when four separate colonies, Upper Canada, Lower Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were united into a single country called ‘Canada’. 

But this year, Canadians muted their National Day and had one question ‘Why should we celebrate genocides ?’.

In 2019, The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls concluded in its final report that Canadian people had executed genocide of indigenous people on the land of present day Canada. 

When the report came out, Canadians couldn’t believe it and majority of people denied the report saying ‘Genocide In Canada? No Way!’ 

But things, people and opinions changed when for the time ever, remains of 215 children were found on the grounds of a former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia. 

Then 751 remains were found at Regina, Saskatchewan and now, remains of 182 more people have been found in unmarked graves in Canada, which brings the total number of 1,148. 

Residential schools were first introduced in 1876. In the 1990s, scholars began pressurizing the government and popularizing the opinion that residential schools were a systematic way of removing children from the influence of their families and culture with an aim to cloud the Canadian culture over them. The final residential school was shut down in 1996 but the remains of the genocide remain.

Canadians denied the celebration of Canada Day because according to them, the day marked murder of thousands of indigenous and innocent people and people questioned the celeberation of genocidal events.
