The chief of the BC First Nation that got no response when it invited Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to visit on the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation says his visit today was ``bittersweet.''

Tk'emlups te Secwepemc Chief Rosanne Casimir chided Trudeau for ignoring their earlier invitations but said his visit to Kamloops today is a chance to move forward.

Trudeau says he regrets his decision not to visit the First Nation on September 30th where the remains of more than 200 Indigenous children are believed to have been found at a former residential school.

He says that instead of talking about truth and reconciliation, people were talking about him and he takes full responsibility for that.
