The 64-year-old employee was an instructor at Saskatchewan Polytechnic (SaskPoly), a post-sec- ondary institution in Regina. On Nov. 26, 2018, the coordinator of the Indigenous Student Centre (ISC) sent an email requesting donations for food ham- pers for students. A short time later, the instructor replied with his own email containing the comment: "Have we not given enough already. Be like the rest get jobs." The ISC coordinator went to the instructor's of- fice to discuss the email, and the instructor asked him why Indigenous students couldn't get jobs like his own students. He also remarked that First Na- tions people should stop asking for handouts and "if it wasn't for programs like the one I am teaching, your people would still be living in teepees."
