Yukon Chamber of Mines: Un-Invite Rex Murphy!
This petition had 219 supporters
The Yukon Chamber of Mines and the Government of Yukon are "proudly presenting" the Yukon GeoScience Forum in mid-November. The keynote address is being delivered by Rex Murphy, a journalist who just wrote an article in the National Post hostile to the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford. It is absolutely devoid of empathy or respect for Blasey Ford, and by extension, for any woman who brings forward "unsubstantiated" allegations of sexual assault. In fact, he believes that Ford herself should be taken to court for even bringing her allegation forward, and that the hearings were “brutal”: no, not for Blasey Ford, but for Kavanaugh.
The GeoScience Forum is a publicly funded event about science and mining. We call on the Yukon Chamber of Mines and the Government of Yukon to consider the impact that Rex Murphy's statements might be having on women working at mine sites, or on young women preparing to enter this male-dominated field. Choose a keynote speaker that everyone can respect.
Un-invite Rex Murphy!
