Indigenous leaders call for Senator Lynn Beyak's resignation - Thunder Bay - CBC News: "Her callous dismissal of the horrors of the Residential School experience is unbefitting a member of the Senate," Fiddler was quoted as saying in a news release issued Tuesday.
"Her misguided statements, including comparisons of her suffering to those who were forced to attend residential schools, are an insult to survivors and all the children who were lost," he said.
"This makes a mockery of the Government of Canada's efforts to move toward reconciliation."

Russian Steel Oligarch and Putin Ally Is Secretly Profiting from Trump's Pipelines: [alternativemediasyndicate.com] After helping launch Putin’s presidency in Russia, Abramovich also was instrumental in the vetting and picking of Putin’s cabinet, according to Midgley and Hutchins in their book. They also reveal that Abramovich was instrumental in the creation of Putin’s political party, Unity.
Abramovich bought a 41 percent stake in the steel producer Evraz in 2006. Prior to that, he owned a 72 percent stake in the Russian state-owned oil company Sibneft, which was eventually purchased for $13 billion by the state-owned company Gazprom and became known as Gazprom Neft.
Before this, however, Sibneft merged in 2003 with the company Yukos, then owned by Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, in an attempt to create what was envisioned as a competitor to the likes of ExxonMobil. Had it materialized, the resulting company, called Yukos-Sibneft, would have been at that point the fourth largest oil producer in the world.
Under pressure from Putin, however, and with what was reported as the helping hand of Abramovich, the deal was called off, and Khodorkovsky ended up arrested and then jailed for eight years for alleged tax evasion and fraud. Abramovich’s personal wealth doubled as a result of the later Sibneft-Gazprom merger.
The Telegraph (UK) reported that Abramovich met with Putin before the Yukos-Sibneft deal was tossed to the curb.
“The revelation of the meeting will fuel suggestions that the Kremlin is closely involved with the fate of the two companies,” The Telegraph wrote at the time. “Many industry commentators saw [the] decision to halt the merger as a government-backed effort to further weaken Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former chief executive of Yukos and its largest shareholder.”
Unite Against Fascism | Anti-fascist campaigners condemn Parliament terrorist attacks and attempts by far-right to exploit them: NEWS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Today’s horrific attack on Westminster bridge and Parliament was condemned in the strongest possible terms by campaigners from Unite Against Fascism (UAF).
While little is yet known of the motives behind the attacks, campaigners stressed the paramount importance of opposing any attempts by both the perpetrator of the attacks and those who wish to exploit it to spread hatred, division, Islamophobia and racism.
Far-right group Britain First have called a demonstration for 1st April. UAF have pledged a counter demonstration if Britain First proceed with such action.
Sabby Dhalu, Unite Against Fascism Joint Secretary said:
“Our thoughts and sympathies are with the victims and of this horrific attack and their loved ones. We strongly condemn this incident. Our thoughts are also with the emergency services working tirelessly to save lives.
“Already within hours of this attack, Britain First are cynically exploiting this tragedy for their own political gain. It is crucial therefore that we stand united against such terrorist attacks and any attempts to whip up Islamophobia, racism, hatred and division.
“Violent fascism, Islamophobia and racism are on the rise. The way we respond in the aftermath of despicable attacks such as today’s is critical to stopping hatred from spreading further. The only way of doing this is through unity against terror, division, Islamophobia and racism.
“If Britain First proceed with a demonstration on 1st April, anti-fascists and anti-racists will be ready with a robust and united response.”
Weyman Bennett, Unite Against Fascism Joint Secretary said:
“The appalling events in London at Parliament have shocked us all. Deepest sympathies must be extended to the victims and their families. There can be no justification for such horror.
“In their haste to incite Islamophobia and hatred of Muslims, the fascists of Britain First, have called a march in Central London, on April 1st. ‘Britain first’ were words echoed by Thomas Mair, when he murdered Jo Cox MP.
“Britain First are notorious Islamophobes whose concern is not with the victims or their relatives, but only lie in racism. We should not be divided by such fascists. UAF calls on all anti fascists to join us in mass opposition to terror, hatred, fascism and division – our unity is our strength.”
