Canadian Civil Liberties Assoc rescind appointment of Michael Bryant as Executive Director
This petition had 1,384 supporters
We, the undersigned object to the appointment of Michael Bryant to Executive Director of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association because of the following reasons:
1. Bryant struck and killed Darcy Allan Sheppard, an Indigenous man who was riding a bicycle in a incident of road rage and then subsequently fled the scene.
2. Bryant gave explanations of the incident, which he published in a book, and which denigrated Darcy Allan Sheppard's character.
3. Bryant obtained an acquittal because of his privilege and position.
4. He was absolved of the crime without participating in any restorative justice measures with the family or Indigenous community impacted.
Michael Bryant has not done any of the work necessary to address his attack on a vulnerable person that would make him at all suited for a position where he would be expected to defend the rights of marginalized people.
