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.
