The apology was generally welcomed, with some comment also that the Discovery doctrine has not yet been revoked.

"This apology, offered today by Pope Francis, will lend itself to the healing we all need so that we can find ways to confront the charge of genocide and the legacy of residential schools in Canada." - Chief Robert Joseph.— Reconciliation Canada (@Rec_Can) July 25, 2022

Pope’s apology neither about Church nor Papacy over last centuries, only individual bad Christians who “cooperated with”assimilation moves “promoted by govts of the time”
By omitting #DoctrineOfDiscovery, he ducks complicity in instigating such schools@RussDiabo https://t.co/CuNyX5Ju0g
Put together a video of one of @Pontifex meeting the Chief’s of the Four Nations of Maskwacis & visiting former Ermineskin Indian Residential School site where children died & many who got out alive still carry the pain.

On a side note, an update on the "boil water" advisories - the Trudeau government has made a huge difference.
Anticipating more residential school denialism last year, Daniel Heath Justice and I created a primer on how to identify and confront it. We hope this continues to be a helpful resource, this week and moving forward: https://t.co/jpfQCef4KI— Sean Carleton (@SeanCarleton) July 22, 2022
I heard 'boil water advisories' mentioned on @CBCNews. While no-one should have to go w/o clean water in Cda, it's important to note (IMHO) that nothing done before fed Libs formed govt Nov 2015, and so far: 82% lifted, plus 8% complete pending lifting, plus 7% under construction pic.twitter.com/stcrkndTSk— Kathryn Mathias (@KathrynMathias1) July 25, 2022

To be clear, it was briefly mentioned by various guests. I'm not criticizing CBC. The guests were making broad, sweeping statements about there being water issues, then changing the topic, so I thought details about what progess had been made would be helpful.
CPC leadership campaign:
Plus, many were added after the original list was created. The original list had 105 advisories; this government has lifted 135. More progress than I have seen in my lifetime. https://t.co/hLCVV625uc— Adrian Wilson (@AdrianW123) July 26, 2022
This is the first "bad" poll for Poilievre. It shows Charest would win Atlantic Canada, would be competitive in Quebec, would do better than Poilievre in Ontario... all at the expense of losing some Prairie and Alberta votes (which the CPC could afford). pic.twitter.com/zkCscjShPT— Philippe J.

There is bad blood between Harper and Charest, in part because when Charest was premier, he sold Harper on the so-called “fiscal imbalance” Quebec suffered. When Harper tried to buy peace and give Charest the money, Charest turned it into a tax cut. Harper was furious. https://t.co/8soQtlMWBa— Dale Smith (@journo_dale) July 26, 2022

And on the lighter side:Even though Russia spent much of last week floating claims that they were going to take more and more and more of Ukraine, the truth seems to be that Putin’s offensive in the Donbas has stalled out short of objectives.While there continues to be fierce exchanges at many points along the front line, and Russia continues to launch attacks toward positions like Bakhmut and Bohorodychne, there are no confirmed reports of a significant gain by Russian forces in over two weeks.In that same period, a number of villages either returned to Ukraine or been thrown into dispute as Ukraine has refused to give Russian forces a chance to catch their breath.At this point, the Ukrainian ministry of defense estimates the Russians have suffered 39,000 killed in action over the course of the invasion. U.S. intelligence estimates that 85% of the Russian military is already actively engaged in Ukraine.When Russia discovered it could not quickly take all of Ukraine, it withdrew and refocused on capturing a much smaller area. Months later, it hasn’t managed to accomplish even that.
