Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has asked Pope Francis to visit Canada to apologize for decades of abuse suffered by indigenous children in schools run by the Catholic Church.

Canada’s “residential schools” system was set up in the late 19th century to assimilate native peoples into Canadian society. Children were separated from their families in an effort to strip them of their traditional cultures.

In the schools, children were forbidden to speak their language or practise their own culture. Many children also suffered physical and sexual abuse. Over 150,000 children passed through the school system and the last one was closed as recently as 1996.
