Quakers ask NB premier to respond positively to Wolastoqey overtures

©Tim Van HornOn Tuesday, July 21, New Brunswick Monthly Meeting wrote a letter to Premier Higgs requesting the Premier to respond positively to the proposal of the Wolastoqey Chiefs for an inquiry into systemic racism. That letter was published online by Brunswick News on Friday and in the print editions of the Fredericton Daily Gleaner, and the Moncton Times-Transcript on Saturday.

In June of this year there were two killings of indigenous people by police in the span of 8 days. Surely we can do better; a first step must be to hear about the experiences of indigenous peoples’ interactions with the government and police publicly, in the light of day and before all people of good faith.
