The Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Deputy Grand Chief Derek Fox is questioning recent actions by Doug Ford’s government.  The new Ministry of Education abruptly cut summer sessions to develop education curriculum on Indian Residential Schools that were set to begin on July 9th and stripped the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation of a dedicated minister in June.

Truth-sharing and education on the Indian Residential School experience is one of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action and the money for this initiative was provided by the Federal government as part of a settlement agreement to Residential School Survivors to the provincial government.

Please write to Lisa Thompson (Huron-Bruce), the Minister of Education, to express your concerns about this issue:
