Parliamentarians and advocates call for exoneration of two Indigenous sisters – June 2, 2022

June 2, 2022 at 8:08 am  Federal, Politics

At a news conference on Parliament Hill, justice advocates and parliamentarians call for the release of two Keeseekoose women who were given life sentences for a crime they say they never committed. In 1994, Odelia and Nerissa Quewezance were convicted of the second-degree murder of Anthony Joseph Dolff, a farmer from Kamsack, Saskatchewan. The sisters’ cousin Jason Keshane, who was at the scene of the crime and was 14 at the time, has admitted numerous times to killing Dolff.
Taking part in the news conference are Senator Kim Pate, NDP MP Leah Gazan, and Kim Beaudin (national vice-president of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples), as well as Odelia Quewezance, who is on day parole, and her lawyer James Lockyer.
