“Mr. Marshall suffered a grave injustice that robbed him of much of his youth, yet he rose above it to continue to fight for Aboriginal rights on behalf of Mi’kmaq and Maliseet people everywhere in the Atlantic provinces,” said Minister Bertram. “He will be remembered for his perseverance and quiet determination. My condolences go out to his family and friends and all who grieve his loss.”
