Statement from Betty Nippi-Albright, Critic for Truth and Reconciliation, First Nations and Métis Relations on news from the Battlefords

I am absolutely appalled by the news coming out of the Battlefords a couple of nights ago and heartbroken that a six-year-old bore witness to this unprovoked attack. Sadly, attacks such as this one occur all too often in Saskatchewan. I stand with the FSIN in urging a swift investigation and appropriate charges. I also implore the people of Saskatchewan to write their MLAs and demand immediate action on the disproportionate levels of violence facing Indigenous people. Racism has no place in our province.

Party government’s inaction on the affordability crisis. She called on the government to follow the example of numerous other provinces like Alberta and enact measures to provide affordability relief to Saskatchewan families.
