“Dozens” of graves at SJTE

The CBC says that “dozens” of graves have been discovered at the building site of St John The Evangelist Catholic School. The graves are from the late 19th century.

Archaeologists so far found 57 gravestones and “dozens of bodies”.

A few graves had been found earlier, and the school had said that they did not expect construction to be delayed—though the Archdiocese recommended further study.

Martin Proctor says that many graves were moved in the first half of the twentieth century, although probably not in a systematic way.
