Saddened to learn about the passing of Ronald ‘Bud’ Sparrow. His courage and leadership led to an important, precedent-setting Supreme Court of Canada decision that advanced Indigenous rights across the country. My thoughts are with his family, friends, and all @musqueam people.

The Musqueam man who took his historic battle for fishing rights all the way to the Supreme Court died last night. Ronald (Bud) Sparrow changed Indigenous rights across Canada and our @Wawmeesh Hamilton takes a look at his legacy.

My thoughts are with Ronald “Bud” Sparrow’s family, friends and all @Musqueam people during this difficult time. We will always remember his legacy of courage, which led to the landmark Supreme Court decision that affirmed Indigenous rights from coast to coast to coast.

Thinking of the entire @musqueam community on the passing of Ronald “Bud” Sparrow. This is very sad news but his legacy will always remain. The Sparrow decision set precedent for Indigenous rights across the county. My sincerest condolences
