It is with great sadness that I share news of the passing of former National Chief Dwight Dorey. Dwight was a friend to me, and a strong supporter of the Qalipu First Nation during his time as National Chief of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, and over the years as an advocate for the Indigenous people of Canada.
On behalf of Qalipu First Nation, its council, staff and membership, we express our sincere condolences to members of Dwight’s family and wish them comfort at this time.
Dwight will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
-Chief Brendan Mitchell
