    Remains found at Kamloops residential school 'not an isolated incident,' Indigenous experts and leaders warn

    Why not a code of behaviour for HS boys indeed. Great idea 'cause both boys and girls need to know that there is a standard of behaviour and that crossing the line has repercussions. After all, we are on page 106 talking about just that: a standard and the repercussions and unless we are...
