A Canadian aboriginal leader apologized for a controversial statement he released that many viewed as anti-Semitic. B’nai Brith Canada called the apology by Chief Terrance Nelson inadequate and repeated its call for Nelson’s resignation. Nelson, chief of the Rouseau River Anishinabe First Nation in southern Manitoba, said he regretted the statement he released last week that said media coverage of former aboriginal leader David Ahenakew’s hate trial in Saskatchewan would increase aboriginals’ hatred of Jews and turn Ahenakew into a martyr.
