Senator Beyak Removed from Senate Committee

Senate of Canada Scandal engulfs Prime Minister
Senate of Canada

OTTAWA – Rona Ambrose, the interim Conservative Party leader has removed Senator Lynn Beyak from the Senate’s Aboriginal People’s Committee.

“I have been very clear that I do not in any way support Senator Beyak’s comments about residential schools. There is no way to explain her comments,” said Ambrose. “She has been removed from the Aboriginal affairs committee in the Senate and I think that’s the right thing to do. I don’t think her comments send the right message.”

Ambrose said that the comments made by the Northwestern Ontario Senator were not in keeping with long-standing policy of the Conservative Party and with the Residential Schools apology that former Prime Minister Stephen Harper made in the House of Commons.

AFN, NAN, and a growing number of Indigenous leaders have been demanding that Senator Beyak be removed from the Senate committee as well as demanding her resignation.
