I am pretty sure both the govt and the church have shredders.
And “demanding”? Have they issued subpoenas or not?
Here is a cite for that- The Final Solution - Which Government Used the Term First?
However, note two things, that letter was dated 1910, 3 decades before “the Final solution” was changed by the Nazis to mean killing them all.
Next, sadly, they do not give the actual letter. I can not find it, and context would be key.
While Scott did not think that education alone was sufficient for civilizing the Indigenous Peoples of Canada, he pushed heavily for it. When he mandated school attendance in 1920, he stated, “I want to get rid of the Indian problem. I do not think as a matter of fact, that the country ought to continuously protect a class of people who are able to stand alone. . . . Our objective is to continue until there is not a single Indian in Canada that has not been absorbed into the body politic and there is no Indian question, and no Indian Department, that is the whole object of this Bill.”
So, he did not want to kill the indians, he wanted to culturally absorb them. This would be called ethnocide. That is certainly a form of evil. And Scotts cheap budget likely led to thousands of deaths.
Was Scott well meaning but deluded? Or was he a genocidal maniac?
