Pope Francis is refusing to apologize for residential schools. 

Last year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asked the Pope to apologize personally for the Catholic Church’s role.

A letter was released today saying he felt he could not personally apologize.

Trudeau has described the move as ‘disappointing’.

The Catholic Church ran around two-thirds of residential schools in Canada.
