UBCIC stands with Williams Lake First Nation and all Residential School survivors

THE Union of BC Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) said on Wednesday that it shares heartfelt prayers for comfort and healing with all those impacted by the Williams Lake First Nation (WLFN) announcement detailing the results of their Phase II Geophysical Investigation into the former St. Joseph Mission Residential School, detailing 66 new reflections which display characteristics indicative of potential human burials.

Phase I of the WLFN Geophysical Investigation announced 93 reflections this time last year in January 2022.

It added: “We stand with the survivors who were forcibly taken to one of the region’s most notorious Residential Schools that operated for nearly a century. We raise our hands to Chief Sellars, the Williams Lake First Nations administration, community members and investigative team for their diligence, care, and leadership and offer our support and steadfast commitment to stand behind BC First Nations seeking justice, accountability and healing.”
