An email joke portraying aboriginals and African-Canadians in a negative light has led to the disciplining of some Parks Canada employees in Manitoba.
According to The Canadian Press, the individuals responsible for the alleged material were quickly and strongly disciplined. (WCxKit)
Cheryl Penny, superintendent at Riding Mountain National Park, says the “shocking and appalling'” email was distributed to 180 workers. Penny says it was pulled from the system as soon as it came to light.
But an aboriginal Parks Canada employee forwarded the email to Rolling River First Nation Chief Wilfred McKay. (WCxKit)
Grand Chief Morris Swan Shannacappo of Manitoba's Southern Chiefs Organization is demanding any Parks Canada worker involved with the email resign or be fired.
