Moreover, the Prime Ministers of Canada and Quebec will travel to the airport to welcome the sovereign pontiff at 3 p.m.

A meeting will also take place at the Citadelle of Québec, in particular with Governor General Mary Simon, representatives of the Aboriginal communities and the diplomatic corps.

Several elected officials will also go to the Saint-Anne basilica for mass on Thursday, in particular the leader of the opposition and the leader of the Parti Québécois.

“There are indigenous communities who have come to see the pope and ask him to come here to take a step towards reconciliation, and I think this step is necessary”, explains Dominique Anglade, leader of the Liberal Party of Quebec. .

For his part, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, who received an invitation like many elected officials, preferred to “politely decline the invitation”, not being a believer.

For their part, the representatives of the indigenous peoples hope to have access to the archives of the residential schools, which could greatly advance reconciliation.
