LETTER: Health authority supports residential school survivors – Quesnel Observer

FNHA applauds Quesnel council’s stand against book that questions tragedies

A joint statement from the First Nations Health Authority is condemning the recent distribution of a controversial book and its impact on the mental wellbeing of the Indigenous community.

The statement was from Julie Morrison, the vice-president of the FNHA’s Northern Region, and Lisa Montgomery the vice-president for the Interior Region.

“Racism in health care, and all facets of life, continues to be a daily lived experience for many Indigenous peoples in B.C. and around the country. The FNHA is aware of and saddened by the situation in Quesnel, and applauds the City of Quesnel for its resolution to denounce the book titled Grave Error – How The Media Misled Us (And The Truth About Residential Schools), and officially state the City of Quesnel’s formal acceptance of the findings of the Truth And Reconciliation Commission.”
