In the last nine days there has been a total of eight churches that have been burned down in Canada.
All eight of the churches were settled on the First Nation’s reserve in Western Canada and authorities have declared that the fires were caused by “suspicious activity”.
St. Jean Baptiste Parish and the Kateri Tekakwitha Church were the latest churches to be burned down and were completely destroyed due to the fact the churches were made of wood.
The fires come after unmarked graves have been discovered on church run residential graves all throughout Canada.
A video was captured of one of the blazes and it’s truly a sad sight to see:

The Guardian had more details to share on the story:
Two more Catholic churches on First Nations reserves in western Canada have been destroyed by fires that investigators are once again treating as suspicious.
Over the weekend, crews in southern British Columbia responded to early morning blazes at St Ann’s Church on Upper Similkameen Indian Band land, and the Chopaka Church on the lands of the Lower Similkameen Indian Band. Both churches, built from wood and more than 100 years old, were burned to the ground.
The fires come nearly a week after two other churches were destroyed , and amid growing anger over the church’s role in Canada’s campaign to forcibly assimilate Indigenous people.
In recent weeks, the country has been rocked by the discovery of nearly a thousand unmarked graves at the sites of church-run residential schools where Indigenous children were forcibly converted to Christianity and stripped of their original names, customs and language.
The Toronto Star got the scoop too:
There have been a series of church fires since the discovery of 215 unmarked graves near a former residential school in Kamloops in B.C. and another site where 751 unmarked graves were flagged on the Cowessess First Nation in Saskatchewan.
After RCMP said Wednesday that they are investigating the “suspicious” fire that levelled the St. Jean Baptiste church in Morinville, the Alberta premier said it appeared to be a hate-crime and called it “unacceptable.”
“These attacks targeting Christian churches are attempts to destroy the spiritual sites that are important to people of faith across Alberta, including many Indigenous people,” said Kenney.
He added that he instructed Alberta’s justice minister to work with police in the province to step up “monitoring and protection of potential target sites.”
Some distasteful users on Twitter celebrated the churches being burned down take a look:

Torn between enthusiastic support for burning down Catholic Churches in Canada vs being very worried about the wildfire risk of such activities

In recent month the Canadian government has been putting pastors in jail for violating COVID-19 guidelines and now churches are being burned all throughout the country.
It appears are full fledged war against Christians is brewing in Canada.
