Quebec Premier Francois Legault says a nurse has been fired after an Indigenous woman who was dying Monday night at a Quebec hospital was subjected to degrading remarks. The Quebec coroner's office confirmed today it will investigate the circumstances surrounding the death.

She captured disparaging remarks made by hospital staff on her phone during her stay there and posted them on Facebook Live. The videos sparked a wave of criticism and protest in a country which has a long history of abuse against its indigenous people.

"Like all Quebecers I was shocked by the racism she was subjected to," Quebec Premier Francois Legault told reporters in Quebec City on Wednesday. He said a provincial task force on racism would issue recommendations in the coming weeks, and a nurse had been fired over the incident.

In the video shared by media outlets and reviewed by Reuters, nurses can be heard in French calling Echaquan "stupid as hell," and suggesting she was only good for sex.

Report: NFL investigating Raiders for breaking COVID-19 protocol

  Report: NFL investigating Raiders for breaking COVID-19 protocol The NFL is investigating the Raiders for potentially violating coronavirus protocols by allowing a team employee without proper credentials to enter their locker room. The alleged violation took place following Monday night’s big win over the New Orleans Saints. Only 40 employees from each organization are allowed inside the locker room. There are security points to prevent unauthorized people from entering locker rooms, and the NFL believes the Raiders staffer eluded those checkpoints.

An Indigenous woman on her deathbed in a Quebec hospital livestreamed the racist insults and threats she received from a nurse . The nurse has been fired and the woman ’s death has renewed Quebec 's debate over systemic racism.

An investigation was launched after she was told by hospital staff she'd 'made bad life choices'. Man sacked after sending these messages to Tinder match who rejected him. Woman bared breasts and accused kebab staff of rape in violent rampage.

Echaquan's family said Joyce had a heart problem.

"I have seven children who no longer have a mother," Carol Dube, Echaquan's husband, told Radio-Canada on Tuesday.

Echaquan's death comes amid ongoing concerns over treatment of indigenous people in Canada, who make up about 5% of Canada's nearly 37 million population. A 2019 Quebec government report found systemic discrimination against indigenous people accessing public services.

In June, a video showing a forceful arrest of a Canadian indigenous leader by Royal Canadian Mounted Police over an incident involving an expired license plate was criticized by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Federal Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller said Echaquan's death "is not an isolated event."

'Justice for Joyce' protests are planned in cities across the country in the coming days, including one in Montreal on Saturday that organizers estimate will draw over a thousand attendees.

"There are many indigenous people that are in the hospital that don't have a telephone to record such a situation," said Claudette Dumont-Smith, executive director at the Native Women's Association of Canada.
