Earlier today, Quebec Premier François Legault commented on the Day of Remembrance for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. Legault, who has infamously never acknowledged the existence of systemic racism in the province, made reference to the coroner’s inquiry that has been called to look into the Joyce Echaquan incident.
