Many people in a small, northern New Brunswick First Nations community say they lost more than just a place of learning when their local school was gutted by an early-morning fire Thursday.
With smoke drifting over the charred structure that afternoon, many people, including students, visited what was left of the school in Eskinuopitijk, the community formerly known as Burnt Church.
And if you looked closely, you would have seen "Nadine was here" carved into a brick wall. Not by my hands.
Burnt Church First Nation School, I'll always love you.
