Statement by Ryan Maguhn on the Tragic Ass­ault on the Paul Band First Nation
EDMONTON, AB – I am extremely saddened by news of the assault of a six-year old girl on the Paul Band First Nation last Saturday. I would like to offer my sympathy and support to the victim’s family and community members at what is surely a difficult time.

Over the coming days, I will be reaching out to community leaders on the Paul Band First Nation and offering my sympathies and support. I am heartened that the community came together to help police swiftly identify and arrest the perpetrator. I encourage those who can to make a contribution to the Christmas Angel trust fund that is being set up to help the victim overcome this ordeal.
It is important that we work with Indigenous communities to put an end to violence against women and girls, and I look forward to being a part of that effort.
