GOLDSTEIN: Conservatives are cowards on Indigenous issues

As long as Conservatives fail to develop a coherent policy for dealing with Canada’s Indigenous people, panicked overreactions like federal party leader Andrew Scheer firing Sen. Lynn Beyak from the Tory caucus will rule the day.

Beyak has been in trouble with the Conservative hierarchy ever since she said residential schools did a lot of good, but Scheer only removed her from caucus in reaction to letters from ordinary Canadians supporting Beyak which she posted online, some containing racist views.
