On July 20, 2021 Councilor Bill Evans of the Town of Sackville New Brunswick stated:

"It's like swapping wives with a bachelor" 

While making an analogy about sharing usage of fire equipment and resources with communities of lesser means.

Mr. Evan's comment is not only off putting given the public forum it was stated in but is immeasurably inappropriate and concerning given the position he holds as an elected representative for the town of Sackville.  

Given that we live in a society that recognizes gender equality and that this equality is recognized and protected by the Harassment Policy for the Town of Sackville and the New Brunswick Human Rights act and indeed the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

We request that the Town of Sackville open a complaint and make public the outcome of said complaint investigation.

We request that council make a statement regarding their position on gender equality and the professional behavior of council. 

We request that Councilor Bill Evans make a public apology and attend Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Training should he continue as a Councilor in the Town of Sackville.
