Comox Valley, BC

For Immediate Release: Message from K’ómoks First Nation: taking a stance against the Danger Cats, who profit from jokes about the mass murder of Indigenous women.

It has come to our attention that the Albertan group Danger Cats is scheduled to perform at an undisclosed venue in Comox on May 30. We are deeply offended by the actions and content promoted by Danger Cats, including their offensive material and merchandise that make light of the monstrous crimes committed by Robert Pickton against Indigenous women and other women who were his victims.

In the spirit of solidarity, we join our voices with the First Nations Leadership Council (FNLC), municipal governments, and community members who have taken a principled stance against these events. We call upon everyone to take a stance against this event and to ensure that the Comox Valley does not become a platform for spreading such hate. Further, the FNLC urges host venues to cancel bookings of any performers who make light of gender-based violence and deepen harm towards victims and survivors.

We are committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant, and welcoming Comox Valley that firmly rejects the promotion of violence, hate, and division. We stand with our neighbours and allies in creating a safe and just society, and we stand together in unity and love.
