We are aware of the social media post by Lorraine Michetti, who is a member of the Peace River Regional District Board of Directors. As Chair of the Board of Directors, I wish to clearly state that we find the sentiment in the post deeply troubling. This was posted to a personal Facebook account. The post does not in any way reflect the views of the Peace River Regional District and we wholeheartedly reject the message contained in it.
Our anti-racism policy clearly and firmly commits the PRRD to conducting its business in an anti-discriminatory and anti-racist manner and environment. This policy applies to elected officials of the PRRD. This is a violation of that policy and once again, we reject in the strongest terms the sentiment expressed in this post.
