It is an important part of Canadian history, although it is one that is a sensitive topic it is still one that should be told. Canada's history has a dark side, and it should be taught to everyone. Not only to my people the Native Americans but to Europeans and other races as well. It should not just go unspoken of and shoved away in a corner, that's like trying to hide a mess inside of a cupboard. It wont get any better, topics like this should be included in every school system in Canada in my opinion. We have a history too, it was not only the whites who made this county it was other races including the Native Americans, together we can move on.
