Bronwyn Eyre should resign or be removed from her post as Sask Minister of Education

This petition had 3,644 supporters

In recent weeks, Bronwyn Eyre has:
-Brought up her son’s homework in the legislature and used it as a basis to suggest massive curriculum reforms.
-Misrepresented the content of that homework and of Treaty Education in this province.
-Demonstrated a complete lack of understanding of the content of the curriculum she was attacking, as well as of Treaty Education generally, it's valuable role in Truth and Reconciliation in this province.
-Demonstrated an utter lack of respect for Indigenous perspectives, and an inability to understand that First Nations, Metis, and Inuit history are as valid (and core) as the history of any other peoples’ in the province.

Taken together, these actions represent incompetence in her role, as well as an attempted erasure of our history of colonialism in Canada. This history has had detrimental impacts on Indigenous Peoples, and understanding this (and working to address it) is a basic requirement to be considered qualified for the position of Minister of Education.

Edit:  On November 15th, Minister Eyre issued an apology.  She specifically apologizes "confusion", and she apologizes to her son three times.  She refuses to directly apologize for, discuss, or even acknowledge any of the other issues raised in this petition.
