The Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay joins its voice to the Grand Council of the Crees of Eeyou Istchee / Cree Nation Government in calling on the Québec Government to initiate a provincial judicial inquiry to investigate the relationship between indigenous women and police forces in Québec. The CBHSSJB applauds all indigenous and non-indigenous people in Val-d’Or and elsewhere who have been working to uphold the rights and ensure the safety of the most vulnerable members of our communities. We encourage everyone who wishes to see such an inquiry take place, to take a few minutes to sign the petition.
