Dear Senator Beyak

I live in British Columbia so I am not represented in the Senate by you, but I did want to extend to you my feelings that you have been treated disgracefully by the media and now by your party leadership. I agree with you that residential schools were well intentioned and that many kids received an education through these schools. While bad things happened as well and deserve the focus, you should not be condemned for your statements.

I also believe that everyone has a right to voice their opinions - particularly Senators, after all that’s your job.

I imagine that you are very stressed right now, so just know that you have supporters as well.

Best Regards

Roger
