WINNIPEG-RCMP are working with a First Nation in western Manitoba to investigate potential graves. Minegoziibe Anishinabe, also known as Pine Creek First Nation, approached police in the summer after a private contractor detected anomalies beneath a church using ground-penetrating radar. RCMP say officers met with the chief, councillors and elders to discuss concerns about possible crimes related to the ground anomalies after survivors spoke of abuses that occurred in the basement of the church. The community says six anomalies were found under the church that sits on the site of the former Pine Creek Residential School. Mounties say the investigation will include multiple phases, with the first to focus on speaking with witnesses, including elders and community members. They say they will consider examining the site after they’ve collected evidence
