2 more Catholic churches on B.C. First Nations reserves burned to ground

Shades of the anarchist revolution in Spain. Although nowadays most Canadians are about as religious as the Western Europeans or the East Asians, i.e. not religious at all.

VANCOUVER — Two more Catholic churches on First Nations reserve land in B.C. have burned to the ground.

The churches, both in the Similkameen region, went up in flames early Saturday morning and both were destroyed completely, say Penticton RCMP.

RCMP say that just before 4 a.m. they received a call about a fire at St. Ann’s Church, which is located just east of Hedley on Upper Similkameen Indian Band land. Then at 4:45 a.m. they got a call about a fire at Chopaka Church on Lower Similkameen Indian Band land, just east of Keremeos.
