CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Albert LeGatt of Saint Boniface (Manitoba) has barred Father Rhéal Forest from preaching after the priest spoke about residential school abuse settlements in a homily.

“If they wanted extra money, from the money that was given to them, they had to lie sometimes — lie that they were abused sexually and, oop, another $50,000,” Forest preached. “It’s kind of hard if you’re poor not to lie.”
