August 1, is Emancipation Day, recognized here in Canada by unanimous vote by the House of Commons in Ottawa on March 24th 2021 and here in Manitoba as a bill introduced my MLA Jamie Moses proclaiming August 1 as Emancipation Day locally. Thank you to the organizers at the St. Norbert Arts Centre for putting this program together acknowledging Canada’s past and a path forward for reconciliation and healing of all enslave cultures in this country. #wpgpoli #EmancipationDay2022.
