Les avocats présentent leurs arguments sur l’argent qu’ils devraient recevoir. L’entente de 875 millions de dollars prévoit qu’ils reçoivent 75 millions de dollars. Un grand nombre des survivants à qui nous avons parlé estiment qu’ils reçoivent trop d’argent #Rafle #SixtiesScoop
Rappelons que l’entente prévoit 50 millions de dollars pour la mise en place d’une fondation qui aidera les survivants. 750 millions de dollars seront des indemnités aux survivants. Un survivant peut recevoir un maximum de 50 000$. #Rafle #SixtiesScoop
« Notre persévérance, notre travail, notre créativité font en sorte que nous méritons cet argent », déclare un avocat. #Rafle #SixtiesScoop
Jusqu’ici les propos des avocats portent sur les sommes prévues par l’entente. Hier, les audiences ont plutôt porté sur la raison d’être de l’entente. Des survivants ont pu indiquer s’ils étaient ou non en faveur de l’entente. #Rafle #SixtiesScoop
Les procédures judiciaires pour les victimes de la Rafle des années 60 ont commencé en 2009. L’entente a été annoncée à l’automne 2017. #Rafle #SixtiesScoop
L’ancien président de la Nation métisse de la Saskatchewan, Robert Doucette, dit qu’il est attristé et révolté par le processus en cours. Selon lui, le juge Shore accorde trop de temps aux avocats, alors que les survivants n’ont droit qu’à 3 minutes #Rafle #SixtiesScoop
« Nous avons attendu 56 ans pour nous faire entendre et le juge ne nous donne que 3 minutes », déclare Robert Doucette. Il pense que les avocats représentent leurs propres intérêts plutôt que ceux des survivants #Rafle #SixtiesScoop

Dispatches from the Prairies.

1/ I have never said this publicly. But, I will also say it now. As a Black woman reporter in Canada & specifically in Saskatchewan, I have for years held myself from reporting on hate groups for my own safety.
2/ Hate groups run by white supremacists are extremely dangerous to me in the practice of my job as a Black journalist. As we know, women and specifically women of colour are disproportionally attacked by trolls. It is profoundly sad to feel unsafe as a Black journalist.
3/ I hope I will still be safe after tweeting this. Frankly, my heart is racing right now.

On #SuicidePreventionDay, facts in #Saskatchewan
A Thread
1/ Overall suicide rates are four times higher in the Indigenous population than in the province's general population. #skpoli
2/ The @fsinations analyzed coroner's reports from suicides in Saskatchewan between 2005 and 2016 and concluded that a First Nations teen girl is 29 times more likely to kill herself than a non-Indigenous teen girl.
3/ Tristen Durocher is a 24-year-old Métis man from Northern Sask. He recently walked more than 600 kilometres to Regina, where he set up a teepee and began a 44 days ceremonial fast to call for a legislated suicide prevention plan. #SuicidePrevention #skpoli

À l’approche du discours du Trône du premier ministre canadien, la Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne demande à @JustinTrudeau un engagement à déposer un projet de loi sur la modernisation de la Loi sur les langues officielles d’ici la fin de 2020. #rcsk #frcan Image
La FCFA veut aussi que cet engagement figure dans la lettre de mandat de la ministre des Langues officielles. #frcan #cndpoli
« Ça fait depuis 2018 qu’on en parle, de la modernisation. (...) Avec tout ce qui s’est dit et écrit sur cette question, il n’y a aucune raison de ne pas passer à l’action maintenant  », dit le président de la @fcfacanada, Jean Johnson @Jean_H_Johnson. #frcan #francophonie Image

At a press conference on the #GreatGreenWall in the #Sahel and #Sahara
Deputy Secretary-General of the @UN @AminaJMohammed says it is vital to complete the wall. "The #GreatGreenWall provides solutions to properly respond and recover from the current challenges." Image
The #GreatGreenWall is meant to tackle climate change, land degradation, and loss of biodiversity in the #Sahel and #Sahara from Senegal to Djibouti. 65% of African land is currently degraded. #ClimateChange #desertification
Close to 18 million hectares of land have been restored by the #GreatGreenWall. The target is 100 million hectares by 2030. In an update today, @UNCCD says 8,2 million hectares & $4.3 billion are needed to reach the goal.

Dispatches from the Prairies
1/ I started the Dispatches from the Prairies months ago, in the midst of the #BlackLivesMatter protests, as I was reporting on the historical & present day echos of the movement on the Prairies as a way to give context & analysis to the facts.
2/ Since then, I have expanded the Dispatches from the Prairies to map out the complexities of race, blackness and to include literature, politics, stories of present day Black Canadians on the Prairies, photography of this gorgeous geographical space, and much more.
I’ve been Black on the Prairies for twenty years and it’s been a fascinating ride.
Ps: if you’re Black on the Prairies, get in touch. My DMs are open.

Dispatches from the Prairies
A Thread
1/ This morning, a group of Conservative MPs holding a rally in Regina's Victoria Park to voice support for the statue of #JohnAMacdonald that stands there were met by protesters calling for the statue's removal. #cdnpoli #skpoli
2/ The event was hosted by Andrew Scheer, MP for Regina-Qu'Appelle, Michael Kram, who represents Regina-Wascana, and Warren Steinley, the MP for Regina-Lewvan.
3/ Those opposed to the statue say it should come down due to the fact that Macdonald created the blueprint for residential schools and deliberately starved Indigenous peoples on the plains.
