Some Winnipeg mayoral contestants are condemning candidate Don Woodstock for standing up at a forum on women’s issues and stating Indigenous men are the cause of violence against Indigenous women.
Woodstock, a security-company owner who is making his second run for mayor, told an audience of about 60 mayoral-campaign workers and ordinary citizens on Thursday evening he believes “Aboriginal men” are the reason violence is committed against Indigenous women.
Woodstock made the comments Thursday evening at a forum organized by the Council of Winnipeg Women and held at the John Osborn unit of the Army Navy Air Force Veterans, in Polo Park.
All of the candidates were provided the same questions, in advance, about how they would improve public safety, Winnipeg Transit and housing for women in this city.
