While tributes and public gestures honoring Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II took place around the world, there was a commemoration of her passing that some felt was unnecessary.
Michelle Robinson leads the Reconciliation Action Group. She is condemning a moment of silence observes in some Calgary schools.
“They can love the Queen and worship her, but I don’t worship people who perpetuate genocide.”
Robinson spoke to Global News at the city hall memorial for the children who died in residential schools.
“We have dead children that never made it home thanks to the policies of the crown. So to expect my people to give solace to the royal family that perpetuated this harm, there’s no way I would give them a moment of silence,” Robinson said.
