MP Bob Nault Speaking Out About Senator Lynn Beyak

Posted on Thursday, January 11, 2018 17:14 PM

Kenora M.P. Bob Nault is joining a growing chorus of voices urging northwestern Ontario senator Lynn Beyak to resign.

Nault calls Beyak misinformed when it comes to indigenous people and survivors of the residential school system.

He's also critical of her decision to publish only letters of support of the residential school system on her website.

"As the Member of Parliament for the Kenora riding, with 42 First Nation communities, the heartbreaking stories I have heard throughout the years have negatively impacted generations of First Nations people. Senator Beyak’s decision to selectively publish only letters of support regarding residential schools on her website is unacceptable."

Nault notes Beyak needs to seriously reconsider her capacity to represent her constituents.
