The three boys who lost their lives just over two weeks ago were honoured earlier this week in the House of Commons.
Niki Ashton delivered a member’s statement, in which she called on everyone to work together with First Nations to build communities that kids can be safe in from bike paths to lights on roads.
Ashton said that the boys were like any other kids across Canada, enjoying one of the first days of warmer weather, and faced challenges that are quote all too common on First Nations.
She said that not only were the boys on a gravel road with no lighting, but that one of the boys lived in a trailer with 17 other people after his mother committed suicide last year.
Ashton concluded her statement by saying that everyone will work to build safer communities for kids like Keethan, Mattheo and Terrence across the country.
