We, the Niagara Regional Labour Council, hear and join the call from the many Indigenous leaders to find and document the gravesites of the many children that were abused and then buried without dignity from the residential school system.
We send our condolences to the bereaved families and their communities and to those who are still dealing with the violence and its effects.
We are also deeply saddened by the vicious attack on June 7th. There is absolutely no place for Islamophobia in our society.
We must find ways to come together and support each other and to heal.
We are here to end the hate and fight to create a safer society with equity and equality for everyone.
