On Friday evening (local time) in the small coastal town of Iqaluit, the 85-year-old Argentine said boys are the future in the region. It is not enough to live on what others have already created. The head of the Catholic Church further explained that what is received as a gift should be won for oneself as well. The world in which people lived in these regions was the wealth they inherited.

The reason for the Pope’s visit to Canada was a request for forgiveness from the indigenous people. In Iqaluit, a few hundred kilometers south of the Arctic Circle, he primarily addressed the Inuit living there. For decades, thousands of Aboriginal children across the country experienced violence and abuse in boarding schools run by the Catholic Church.
