Salsa on St. Clair and Saskatchewan Trip

Posted on July 23, 2014 | No Comments

Last weekend I attended one of my favourite St. Paul’s events of the summer, Salsa on St. Clair.  It’s always wonderful  to celebrate Latin culture with the Hillcrest BIA and participants from across Toronto and beyond.

Assembly of First Nations AGA

Posted on July 18, 2014 | No Comments

I was so pleased to attend the recent AFN meeting in Halifax and was greatly encouraged by the constructive approaches of the attendees on many important fronts.

The sessions throughout the AGA were very informative and the quality of debate on these critical issues was inspiring. I was especially honoured to attend the Circle of Hope rally and stand in solidary with those calling for urgent action to address the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. I’ve included some pictures of my trip below.
