Official Opposition reopens #PEIvirtualQP to ask government to provide their position on the Mi’kmaq treaty right to a moderate livelihood

Summerside, PE – The violence and racism faced by Mi’kmaq in Nova Scotia is deeply concerning. Numerous Islanders have been reaching out to the Office of the Official Opposition to also express concern.

Over the last couple of weeks Peter Bevan-Baker, Leader of the Official Opposition, has been sharing his concern over the violence and showing his support of the Mi’kmaq fishers’ right to a moderate livelihood. (September 21, 2020 – Statement of support; October 1 – Reconciliation and Treaty Day; October 17 – Tweet on violence against Mi’kmaq)

The government has yet to make any statement whatsoever. In an attempt to get answers from the Premier on his government’s position, the Official Opposition has reopened the PEI Virtual QP with a question directed to the Premier.

The question has also been posted on the Official Opposition Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/peigreencaucus
