CWN Editor's Note: “These churches represent place of worship for community members as well as gathering spaces for many for various celebrations and times of loss,” the Similkameen Indian Bands said in a statement. “It will be felt deeply for those that sought comfort and solace in the Church.”

Following the burning of the churches, a statue of St. John Paul II was vandalized in Edmonton. Earlier in June, two other churches were burned to the ground in British Columbia.
