Education minister Bronwyn Eyre was under attack in the Saskatchewan legislature Wednesday.
The minister is in hot water for saying there might be too much “infusion” of First Nations history in school curriculum.
Even though Eyre apologized for her comments, NDP critic Carla Beck demanded her resignation.
She said, “thousands of people are calling for her resignation, and will she resign and accept responsibililty for her damaging words”?
Eyre apologized again for causing confusion but did not offer to resign.
Premier Brad Wall said he stands by Education minister Eyre, pointing to her apology and a committment to continue treaty information in the school system.
Wall pointed out his government was the first to ensure treaty information was taught in Saskatchewan schools.
