A day after national residential school abuse hearings wrapped up in Vancouver, B.C., tens of thousands of people sprawled through the city’s downtown, calling for a new relationship between Canadians and aboriginals.

As the University of B.C. is set to reveal its findings Wednesday about the use of an infamous rape chant, new allegations have surfaced that students also shouted a chant that mocked aboriginals during FROSH week activities.
