    Canadian government ministers and officials are expected to take questions from opposition parties on the discovery of a mass grave for 215 Indigenous children in a former Kamloops residential school in B.C. during Monday’s question period.

    The Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc announced the discovery Thursday after ground-penetrating radar confirmed what members had long said about the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, which was the largest institution of its kind in Canada.

    Amid the symbolism of flags being lowered on government buildings in the country, calls for accountability in the wake of the discovery continue to grow.

    Grand Chief Stewart Philip of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs called for an unprecedented and thorough investigation along the lines of the one conducted into convicted serial killer Robert Pickton.
