Vancouver Supports Indigenous Human Rights!!
On April 6th, we have an amazing opportunity to show the Government that Canadians truly want reconciliation. Bill C-262 will ensure that the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is respected in Canadian law. But the timing is urgent - we need to get 262 through the Senate soon. Grab your friends and come show your support! Saturday at 1pm at the CBC building downtown (800 Hamilton Street).
Join Indigenous People’s Choice award winner Cheryl Bear and others, as we rally support for Indigenous Human Rights. This event is InterFaith and will include representatives from many faith traditions who will explain their commitment to this Bill.
Background: The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has called Canada to adopt and implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as “the framework for reconciliation” (Call to Action #43). Bill C-262 will ensure that Canada's laws are in harmony with the Declaration. But we need your help! 262 is in the Senate and it needs to get through committee and to 3rd vote in the next few months or it will not achieve royal assent. Please come out, and show your support for Bill C-262!
