The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

It's pretty weird to bury kids at ANY school.

They're Catholic
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

We know absolutely nothing about these skeletons.

Are they aboriginal?
Was the school built on a traditional burial ground?
Were they buried in a single event, several large events, or slowly over time. (215 averages out to be just under 3/year over the time the school was in operation)?
What was the mortality rate of diphtheria, small pox, typhoid.... in the late 1800's and early 1900's in Kamloops?
What was the mortality rate of the Spanish flu pandemic of the 1918?
Are any of these fatality rates different from society in general or from reserve populations of the time?

Given the size of the school population combined with length and period (1890's-1969) of time the school operated I am not surprised at all that there would be 215 skeletons.

Graveyards at churches sure. Never heard of Catholic schools having graveyards. Morbid.

Edmonton’s CFL franchise changes team name to ‘Elks’
Edmonton dropped its longtime name, Eskimos, last year following a similar decision by the NFL’s Washington team amid pressure on franchises to eliminate racist or stereotypical names.

A Modest Proposal is sarcastic irony suggesting the poor Irish of the 18th century could sell their children to the upper class English for food.
Swift points out that a newborn baby is about the right size to fit in a standard pot and that poor people tend to have quite a lot of children. It’s a “perfect” solution

How are 200 children who died in government care but not returned to their families similar ?

Honest question

Swift made an economic attendant that 2 us was the max age for "farm raised" children. For quality, like break peaked at 1 year.

Can't you appreciate the irony of Catholic schools carrying out Swift's sarcasm.
