Global News published this video item, entitled “Search for burial sites underway at former Shubenacadie residential school” – below is their description.

After the remains of 215 Indigenous children were found in Kamloops, B.C., places like Nova Scotia have started investigations and a search of the former Shubenacadie residential school site is now underway.

It was demolished in 1986, and remains a place of trauma for the Mi’kmaw First Nation. Anthropologist Jonathan Fowler is working with a team investigating the site.

They’re using the same ground-penetrating radar survey technology that helped the search in B.C.

As Jesse Thomas reports, there’s a sense of urgency to get the search started and done to the highest standard.
