Health scientist Carrie Bourassa on immediate leave after scrutiny of her claim she's a fake native

State Media: Bourassa, who has headed up an Indigenous research lab at the U of S and the CIHR's Institute of Indigenous Peoples' Health, has publicly claimed to be Métis, Anishnaabe and Tlingit. CBC found there was no evidence she was Indigenous, despite her claims many times over the past 20 years. When asked, Bourassa hasn't offered any genealogical evidence to back up her claims, but in a statement she said two years ago she hired a genealogist to help her investigate her ancestry, and that work continues.
