The events that have occurred over the last week south of the border are deeply troubling, saddening and difficult to comprehend.

We have to acknowledge that racism does not stop at the border and exists in our community, as it does in many others. Georgina is growing more diverse, and when we witness racism, we need to work harder, be louder and step-up with a united voice to stop it. It will mean difficult conversations, active listening, continuous learning and a willingness to do the work that must be done. As a society, we have a long way to go.
