The discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves on the site of a former residential school in Saskatchewan has once again renewed focus on Canada’s track record on reconciliation and its treatment of First Nations peoples.

The find is the latest in a series of discoveries since 215 unmarked graves were found at a Kamloops site, drawing international attention on Canada.

National Post reporter Chris Nardi joins Dave to discuss what led to the latest discovery, how the local First Nations community has responded, and whether people are starting to re-think early estimates of how many kids died at residential schools.
