The CRRF joins with all Canadians to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the Canadian Multiculturalism Act and to note with pride the progress that all Canadians have made in building a country that is rightly ranked as one of the best in the world.
We encourage Canadians to take time during the month of June to review the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and to choose, from the list of 94, one item that they can work towards over the next twelve months
The increase in the number of hate crimes recorded by Statistics Canada and the rise of intolerant speech in both the public square and the online environment challenges us to build bridges to our fellow Canadians rather than walls to separate us
