Newfoundland and Labrador’s premier will meet with Innu Nation leaders Monday after a former cabinet minister said the Indigenous group is prone to playing the race card.
A spokesperson for Dwight Ball says the Liberal premier will be in Labrador for Monday’s meeting.
Perry Trimper resigned as environment minister on Friday after apologizing for the comments captured in a voice-mail message left with an Innu Nation staff member.
The Labrador politician is still a member of the Liberal caucus.
Photos and videos on social media showed a small protest outside Trimper’s office in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Monday ahead of the leaders’ meeting.
