Health Providers Against Poverty join in expressing our deep anger and sadness over the death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet.

As health providers, we practice in predominantly white institutions and acknowledge our complacency in perpetuating these experiences of racism and discrimination. As such, we urge the Ministry of the Attorney General, SIU, and Ministry of the Solicitor General to proceed with diligent reflection and corrective action to limit and reverse the ways in which our current institutions, legal or otherwise, protect, promote, and perpetuate white supremacy.

Please read our letter to Ministry of the Attorney General, SIU, and Ministry of the Solicitor General below and consider sending your own letter to ensure this horrific event and future events do not continue to be swept under the rug with no action.
