O'Toole tells students residential schools created to 'provide education' but became 'horrible' - 2020-12-15
Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole told a group of students residential schools were created to "try and provide education," and became "horrible."
O'Toole made the comments in a video posted to the Ryerson Conservatives club Facebook page on Nov. 5.
"Let's learn from the bad mistakes and, in some (cases), tragic circumstances of our past. But when Egerton Ryerson was called in by Hector Langevin and people, it was meant to try and provide education," O'Toole said, referring to the creation of the residential school system.
