Historica Canada just released a powerful new Heritage Minute addressing the legacy of Canada's residential school system.
While many Heritage Minutes cover proud or triumphant parts of Canadian history, this focuses on one of Canada's worst chapters.
The new TV spot tells the story of Chanie Wenjack, who died from exposure after running away from his school in 1966 at age 12.
