Residential school survivors and the PM's apology
A clearly emotional Justin Trudeau formally apologized on Friday to students of Newfoundland and Labrador residential schools.
They had been left out of the settlement and federal government apology in 2008 because those schools were created before the province joined Confederation in 1949, and thus weren't created under the Indian Act.
It's been long, painful journey for a lot of survivors.
The CBC's David Cochrane got a unique window into the experiences of two of those former students: Toby Obed and Jimmy Tuttauk.
