The RCMP had limited knowledge of the abuses at residential schools, according to a recent report.

 

The report, released on  Oct. 29 at a Truth and Reconciliation Commission event in Halifax, describes the RCMP’s role  as that of “responsive truant officer.”  Officers were not directly involved with school activities but acted on the request of Indian Agents to enforce compliance with the Indian Act, the report stated.
