Thank you

This is a video recorded and edited by our youth leads to say thank you to our front-liners, necessary workers, to our family, and to anyone risking their lives to maintain a functioning and working society.

We strongly condemn acts of violence and racism and stand in solidarity with people of colour, black, and indigenous people from all faiths and background.
