The graves are believed to contain remains of Indigenous children forcibly taken from their families from the late 1880s to the 1990s. We talk with Assembly of First Nations National Chief RoseAnne Archibald. And, there have been a number of COVID-19 cases among athletes, team officials and others who've arrived in Tokyo for the Olympics.
