Feb 22: Anti-Discrimination Town Hall

Join us at our Anti-Discrimination Town Hall, co-hosted with MPP Arthur Potts.

Please RSVP and share our Facebook page here.

January 27th was International Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorating the genocide of 6 million Jewish people, and many others.

And January 29th marks one year since the horrifying attack that killed six worshippers in a Quebec City mosque. It should be recognized as a National Day of Remembrance & Action on Islamophobia.

We are not immune to hate here in Canada, and we are not immune to hate here in Beaches-East York.

I encourage everyone to join us on February 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Grant A.M.E. Church for our Anti-Discrimination Town Hall co-hosted with Arthur Potts, MPP, to discuss how we can effectively combat hate, intolerance, and systemic discrimination. We’ll discuss Ontario’s overhaul of policing practices, and the House of Commons study on ways the government can address systemic racism and discrimination.

We will be joined by Provincial Minister Michael Coteau (Minister Responsible for Anti-Racism), as well as MP for Mississauga-Erin Mills, Iqra Khalid who co-sponsored M-103 (anti-Islamophobia motion) in 2017.

As a follow up to M-103, read a recent editorial piece outlining the results of the study conducted by the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage.

All ideas are welcome.
