Were they being sexist or where they just being silly?

That is the question raging on social media.

One of the female candidates taking part in APTN’s AFN leadership forum is accusing several male candidates of making sexist comments off-camera.

APTN National News reporter Melissa Ridgen has this story.

  1. Joan fired the first public sexist remark when she stated for a news camera that she as a woman could get through to Harper like none of the men could….it cuts both ways…

  2. so stoopid….she started off by publically maintaining that she as a woman would be able to handle Harper like no man could …that IS sexist….as a way to intimidate the field….give me a break….

  3. When we have OUR men making sexist remarks and actually admitting to being sexist pigs how do they expect the rest of society to respect our women??? It undoes all the work that so many of our indigenous women have done to establish respect and dignity in all of our communities wherever they reside. Where are the basic principles of culture when men and some women (in all fairness) choose to trample on them?
