The Liberal Candidate running for the Churchill Keewatinook-Aski Electoral District, Judy Klassen, released a statement regarding the Trudeau Governments decision to appeal a Canadian Human Rights tribunal ruling.
The ruling ordered Ottawa to pay compensation to first nation’s children and their families that were separated by the child welfare system.
Klassen stated that they believe that collaboration rather than litigation is the best way to advance reconciliation and in moving forward with compensation its critical to sit down and have these conversations with our partners something that isn’t possible during an election.
She added that she agrees with the need for compensation and that it should be part of the healing process to those that have experienced significant wrongs.
Klassen says she is committed to ensuring that these conversations occur in a way that will focus on reconciliation and healing if elected as MP.
