CWN Editor's Note: On May 13, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis will visit Edmonton, Québec and Iqaluit in July.

“While some [Indigenous leaders] say they hoped the Pope’s visit will be a step toward reconciliation, others are disappointed he will not be travelling to provinces such as Saskatchewan, where many of Canada’s residential schools were located,” according to the report.
