McGill, Mohawk Mothers reach settlement agreement to investigate Royal Victoria Hospital site


McGill University and the Mohawk Mothers have reached an agreement that will initiate an investigation into potential unmarked graves and burials on the former Royal Victoria Hospital site. The agreement will ensure that the “appropriate archeological techniques” are used to detect whether there are graves on the site and will bind the parties to follow the recommendations of the panel of archaeologists responsible for the work. Federal Independent Special Interlocutor Kimberly Murray, whose mandate focuses on unmarked burial sites across Canada, expressed optimism about the arrangement and described the settlement agreement as representing “concrete action by all parties.”
