Canada apology to Chinese migrants

Chinese immigrants were charged to enter Canada

 

But now Prime Minister Stephen Harper has told parliament that the policies were racist and shameful and had lasting effects upon Chinese-Canadians.

 

Comment: It is good to make a clean breast of one-self and to be contrite.

I wonder whether this new found milk of human kindness would also be offered to the indigenous Indians as I have highlighted their cause before?
