Gazan demands answers from Federal Government in Death of two Sagkeeng men in Custody

Today, NDP MP Leah Gazan asked the following questions to Minister Bill Blair (Minister for Public Safety):

Mr. Speaker,

This past month, two men from Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba died while in custody at Stony Mountain federal Penitentiary.

My condolences go out to the loved ones of Dwayne Simard and William Ahmo

We need immediate action to ensure no more lives will be taken at the hands of the colonial justice system.

With the support of Chief Henderson, their families and the community are demanding answers.

When will the Minister provide answers for the families of Dwayne Simard and William Ahmo who died at the hands of the system?
