Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called on the Catholic Church to “take responsibility” for its role in Aboriginal boarding schools.

The remains of 215 children were found buried in one school last month, sparking nationwide outrage.

Trudeau said the church’s requests to publish its school records were met with “resistance”.

Government-run boarding schools were established for the forced integration of indigenous children.
