Tory senator, Lynn Beyak, has been given the boot.
Beyak was suspended from the Senate for refusing to remove racist letters about First Nations from her web site.
Beyak has said she believes the letters — some of which describe Indigenous people as lazy, opportunistic, pampered and inept — are not racist but rather "edgy and opinionated." She said they are part of a larger discussion she is trying to foster in Canada about the positive experiences of residential school students.Oh dear. Where will they find another racist Tory? Oh wait, just about anywhere.
Unfortunately Beyak will be back. The suspension is limited to the current session of Parliament. With an election six months off she'll miss a few paycheques but that's about it.
