America has become deeply divided through politics, religion, crime and hate. We need to stick together as Canadians, making sure we have one strong unified Canada!

We’ve all seen it the news – a story involving a visible minority, religion or race. Where the reported is a visible match to the group and the story is as much about the group as the incident. So many people pass over it as though it is not about them.

How many Amber Alerts do you remember hearing for a Native Canadian child? They go missing too!

Native women went missing for years with nothing being done. Many Canadians felt it was not about them, and ignored it.  It took years of work and protests by the families and friends of this missing women to convince Canadians that it was their issue too.

When people hear of violence against women many say – “I’ve got daughters, this is very important to me.” What about their sons? Caring shouldn’t be gender related.

Hard to believe that Canadians would be against any type of head covering – especially in winter!

For decades Canadians were proud that we provided U.N. peacekeepers to war torn countries. Peacekeepers set the example of treating people fairly, setting an example of how to get along and live together.

In Canada we need to get this attitude back.

There were thousands of Canadians protesting President Trump in the U.S.  The Quebec City Mosque shooting is in Canada. All Canadians need to get involved so it does not happen again.
