Over the past few months, British Columbians have pulled together to vanquish COVID-19, and we have witnessed many acts of kindness and selfless generosity. Sadly, however, our success has been marred by recent incidents of race-based violence and discrimination. I strongly condemn these racist acts; they have no place in our province or our country. I ask you to join me, alongside leaders in government, business and social services, in pledging to uphold the Canadian values of diversity and inclusion and to oppose racism and hate in all its forms. We are stronger when we are #DifferentTogether.
Take the #DifferentTogether Pledge:
Join me in sharing the #DifferentTogether pledge on social media and encouraging others to take part.
Ways to Participate in Three Easy Steps:
- Download the #DifferentTogether pledge graphic for Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
- Share it on social media and tag five friends, family members, or leaders in your community.
- Encourage them to do the same.
I also encourage you to share a video of yourself highlighting your commitment to opposing racism, and upload it to social media using the hashtag #DifferentTogether.
Diversity is at the core of who we are as Canadians. Join me in opposing racism in all its forms.
