Communities of faith are invited to demonstrate their support of Bill C-262 - the Indigenous Human Rights Bill - on Saturday, April 6 at 1pm at The CBC Building downtown, 800 Hamilton Street.
This event will include representatives from many faith traditions who will explain their commitment to reconciliation. Join performing artists and indigenous speakers for this family-friendly gathering.
Background: The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has called Canada to adopt and implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as “the framework for reconciliation” (Call to Action #43). Bill C-262 will ensure that Canada's laws are in harmony with the Declaration. Bill C-262 is in the Senate and it needs to get through committee and to a 3rd vote in the next few months or it will not achieve royal assent. We need people to show up on the streets to show broad-based support for the passage of the Bill.
