Congratulations for making the very tough decision to close your newspaper’s Facebook page. Media across the country are grappling with the shocking increase in online hatred directed at Aboriginal Peoples. Your actions help send a strong message that providing a forum for hateful and racist speech is not the way forward. Thank you for saying no to racism.

Yours truly,

Barbara Hall, B.A., LL.B, Ph.D (hon.)
