OTTAWA — Racist letters about Indigenous Peoples have finally been removed from Sen. Lynn Beyak's website — but only because Senate officials erased them after Beyak refused to do so herself.

She is still thumbing her nose at Senate orders to apologize for posting the letters and to take educational programs on racism directed at Indigenous people.

In early May, senators voted to suspend Beyak without pay for the remainder of the parliamentary session, which ended with the call of the federal election on Sept. 11.
