natives burn down catholic church
Two on-reserve churches burned down on Indigenous Peoples Day | APTN News
The RCMP officers in B.C. investigating two on-reserve church fires over the weekend say they’re sending surveillance video obtained at one of the fires to be enhanced.
According to Sgt. Jason Bayda of the Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen detachment, the police have a video “that shows a dark coloured pick-up truck showing up to Sacred Heart Church just prior to the fire and leaving just prior to the fire starting.
“The video at this point is not clear enough to say what make or model of the vehicle is other than it’s a dark pick-up truck.”
The Sacred Heart Church on Penticton Indian Band (PIB) land has been closed since June 16 in response to a request from parishioners who are members of PIB as reported by IndigiNews.
The church was built in 1911 and used to be attached to the Indian day school until that building was burned down in the mid-1960s, according to Adam Eneas, hereditary chief with the Okanagan Nation and who used to be a student at the day school.
