I am ashamed and outraged at what Catholic leaders had to endure, he said at a meeting with local Canadian leaders and other delegates. He also said he would be going to Canada soon. Local leaders of Canada want the Pope to come to Canada to apologise. In its 2015 report, a Canadian commission said that decades ago, indigenous school children were sexually abused and starved in residential schools in Canada. Many children died due to it and were buried on the school premises.
