WINNIPEG — A First Nations politician in Manitoba says he doesn’t want his children to see themselves as victims of genocide.

NDP Leader Wab Kinew says the inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls lays out a good argument for how the United Nations definition of the term genocide applies in Canada.

However, he wants his sons to view themselves as proud, capable people of integrity, who hold their heads high in society.

The use of the term instantly became a flashpoint after the report, released on Monday, concluded that violence against Indigenous women has amounted to genocide.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stopped short of using the term, instead saying violence against Indigenous women and girls is not a relic of Canada’s past.

Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister says he will let other people debate whether genocide is the right term while his government considers how to move forward in the spirit of the report.
