March On Canada along with their affiliate cities are calling upon the Canadian government to demand that the U.S. end child detention and family separation, to reunite the families that have been separated, and for Canada to end the Safe Third Country Agreement, which makes it extremely difficult for refugees from the United States to cross over to Canada through land border crossings.
In our June 30th events, we will be acknowledging Canada’s role in separating families, through the history of residential schools, the 60s Scoop, and the continued practise of removing children from Indigenous families and placing them into foster care. In addition, we must examine our country’s own treatment of refugee children.
Please check our facebook and your local city’s facebook for more information on what event you can attend and group to support. There are many who are doing the work already, we are here to amplify that work.
