‘Senator Beyak: For The Record’

This is an edited transcript of a speech that Senator Lynn Beyak gave to the Canadian Senate. In response, the Aboriginal Industry started making her a focus of their attacks, which continue to this day…

    “I was in an abusive relationship… I didn’t think I was going to be walking into something so similar to what I was in.”  

    “This is not residential school all over again.”

Katherine Morrisseau-Sinclair and Justice Murray Sinclair“Almost 10 months after staff and clients of the ‘Native Women’s Transition Centre’ forwarded serious complaints about Executive Director Katherine Morrisseau Sinclair to the NDP government… an email from Board Chair Sherri Walsh, a well-known city lawyer, said that Sinclair is on leave from the organization as of…December 18th.   Continue reading ‘Clean Up Your Own Backyard’
