    In British Columbia, police are investigating two Catholic churches which both burned down within Indigenous communities just hours apart.

    St. Gregory’s Church on Osoyoos Indian Band land and the Sacred Heart Church on Penticton Indian Band both went up in flames during the early hours of National Indigenous Day.

    As Robin Gill reports, the fires happened as renewed anger fumes over the Church’s role in residential schools.
