Statement on Openness and Respect in Nanaimo

by ahnationtalk on June 19, 2015578 Views

This statement has been issued on behalf of a partnership of community organizations in Nanaimo and region.

For generations people from around the world have come to our community to visit, live, learn, work and do business — welcomed first by the Snuneymuxw peoples and joined, more recently, by those who now call the Nanaimo region home.

This openness and respect for our fellow global citizens is today a hallmark of our community and of our shared prosperity in the future.

As leaders we celebrate the diversity of our community and stand together in solidarity to reaffirm our commitment to remain a community that welcomes everyone.

Furthermore, we are united in our belief that expressions of intolerance, racism and hate do not belong in our community, and must be challenged by our own expressions of openness, mutual respect and, above all, by how we care for and support one another.

We encourage all citizens, business and organizations in our community to join us in demonstrating their support of these values by adding their names to our online statement on
