This weekend, as we sit down to share a meal with family, let’s remember those people who are struggling and trying to make ends meet in Windsor/Essex County.
Let us also reflect on the complicated history of the “Thanksgiving holiday” and acknowledge that Indigenous communities have been disproportionately impacted by poverty, discrimination and a lack of access to resources that others take for granted. We continue to witness the experiences of Indigenous people who for generations have been the target of a systemic and oppressive colonial system.
Everyone deserves to be able to support themselves and provide for their families. We all want our children to have opportunities, to have healthy, stable and satisfying lives. We want our communities to prosper and thrive.
It's time to disaster-proof Canada and invest in the services that keep our communities strong. No one should ever fall through the cracks again.
