Little Black River First Nation Resident Cyara Bird will be running for the Conservative Party in our federal riding of Churchill Keewatinook Aski. Bird says she is fulfilling a lifelong dream. She explains politicians are the voice when it comes to education, human rights, laws, etc. and she finally decided to take the effort and actually run after a really horrible experience she had with hate and racism and that’s when she knew that we needed someone to step up, we needed someone to be a strong voice who won’t tolerated bullying someone who will make actual change. She say also our riding has a little more than 53 percent of all of Canada’s Indigenous population and to be a voice for them and everyone else is something that drove her to run.
Bird adds she feels the north is ignored and she wants to be the voice that gets us heard in the House of Commons while listening to the voices of people in the riding.
