Vatican says Pope Francis willing to visit Canada as Indigenous leaders seek apology

The Vatican says Pope Francis is willing to visit Canada, as Indigenous leaders call on him apologize for the Catholic Church's role in residential schools. The Vatican said in a statement that the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops invited Francis to travel to Canada in the 'context of the long-standing pastoral process of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.'
