Indigenous Resignations

Indigenous Resignations

WINNIPEG - Two Indigenous men have stepped down from their positions on Manitoba economic development boards over comments made by premier Brian Pallister and one of his new ministers.

Jamie Wilson says he couldn't support the government's rewriting of history.

Darryl Brown says he had to get away from any connection to the Conservative government.

Indigenous leaders say Pallister minimized the harmful effects of colonialism, while his Indigenous reconciliation minister Alan Lagimodiere said residential schools weren't all bad.
