Happy Canada Day
June 26, 2021

With Canada Day not far off, if you are wondering whether I‘m organizing our annual Vancouver Quadra Canada Day Picnic, sorry to disappoint!  I really missed seeing you last year, but it’s smart to still be cautious and respect limitations on gatherings.  This year Canada Day will be tempered by recent reminders that Canada’s past includes dark and difficult chapters.  I share with you the deep distress Canadians are experiencing, learning that hundreds of children died, unacknowledged, at the Kamloops and Cowessess Indian Residential Schools, their bodies never returned to their families and homes. Let’s acknowledge and commit to fully reconcile historic errors and harms, celebrate our country’s many positive accomplishments, and vow to continue our collective work to make Canada the best it can be.
