I support apologizing for slavery. I don't support courts (which are already backed up while peoples LIVES hang in the balance) wasting time putting a dead man on trial.

As I mentioned to NAB, I'd be glad to settle for an official recognition of what happened by a suitable government body. It's important that we learn from the past, and have our collective institutions acknowledge these lessons. This is why I'm hoping the next Prime Minister of Canada will get up in front of the whole world and say that what we did with the residential school system was genocide, and that all those who supported it have bloods on their hands.

But, as you said, Nixon went rogue and did this without any authority, and was not president at the time. Ask the Nixon family to acknowledge it? Or don't, whatever. It was not an action by the US government.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_ ... ool_system

The Indian Residential Schools were a network of "residential" (boarding) schools for Native Canadians (First Nations or "Indians"; Métis and Inuit). Funded by the Canadian government's Indian Affairs and Northern Development, and administered by Christian churches, predominantly the Roman Catholic Church in Canada (60%), but also the Anglican Church of Canada (30%), and the United Church of Canada (including its pre-1925 constituent church predecessors)(10%).[1] The policy was to remove children from the influence of their families and culture, and assimilate them into the dominant Canadian culture.[2] Over the course of the system's existence, approximately 30% of native children, roughly some 150,000, were placed in residential schools nationally.[3]

The system had origins in pre-Confederation times, but was primarily active following the passage of the Indian Act in 1876, until the late-20th century. An amendment to the Indian Act made attendance of day school, industrial school or residential school compulsory for First Nations children and, in some parts of the country, residential schools were the only option.[4] The number of residential schools reached 80 in 1931 but decreased in the years that followed. The last federally operated residential school was closed in 1996.[5] In total, about 150,000 First Nations children passed through the residential school system,[6] and at least 4,000 of them died while attending the schools.[7]

If we do end up exhuming Nixon and tossing him in a land fill then LBJ should be tossed in there right beside him. A sitting President had proof that a Presidential contender was guilty of treason and did nothing? He quietly arranged for Nixon to be told that he knew about the treason but never outed Nixon? I wonder what LBJ received for his silence.
