Trudeau Apologies to Tsilhqot'in Chiefs


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made an emotional apology in the House of Commons to the tribe of the Tsilhqot'in chiefs that were hanged in 1864.

The Prime Minister also absolved the Tsilhqot'in leaders of any wrongdoing.

Trudeau said, "today, we come together in the presence of the Tsilhqot'in chiefs, to fully acknowledge the actions of past governments, committed against the Tsilhqot'in people, and to express the government of Canada's profound regret for those actions."
