For those in our community feeling conflicted as to how to celebrate our country we are so Blessed to live in. First Nations Indigenous peoples are experiencing deep sadness and grief from the recent finding of Indigenous children’s bodies in mass graves. As part of Canada Day, it is important that we look to First Nations peoples to lead our community in ways to show we can respect their rights and show meaningful support to them. The Brantford Region Indigenous Support Centre is hosting an “Every Child Matters” peaceful march on Canada Day, Thursday July 1st at 11am to march in unity to the Mohawk Institute. Meeting at the Civic Centre parking lot at 11:00 am, the march will begin at 12:00 pm and conclude at the Mohawk Institute. I encourage everyone to attend and show their support at the march, lead by the Brantford Region Indigenous Support Centre.
We are stronger together.
Councillor Judi Partridge
