Yesterday some concerning allegations relating to abuse and gender-based violence were made against the Executive Director of Canadian Roots Exchange (CRE) on Twitter. Today, SUN learned that CRE has placed their Executive Director, Max Fineday, on administrative leave pending an investigation in response to these allegations. Details of the preliminary steps CRE have taken can be viewed here: https://canadianroots.ca/statement-by-board/). As a result, SUN will be stepping away from any affiliation with CRE and Max Fineday pending the outcome of a full investigation of these allegations. As healthcare professionals, registered nurses and SUN will always stand against domestic and gender-based violence and harassment in all its forms.
