To all my friends in the great province of Ontario, Canada I hope you are getting on as best you can during this latest lockdown. I hope you can crush COVID soon and borders can reopen for your crazy neighbors to the south to come visit soon. You have lousy leadership from your premiere/governor among others that isn’t helping you any. Hang in there and you have my unwavering support. Peace to you all.
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. There are also recognitions of Black History Month in Canada, United Kingdom and The Netherlands. You cannot tell the story of a nation without Black stories being heard. I am glad to learn more and to be a part of this.
I am not Canadian, but in my dreams I am. I support the talk about mental health going on today in Canada with the Bell Let’s Talk initiative. Everyone struggles. Everyone needs someone to talk to. Keep a watch out for one another. The world is a tough place these days. Peace to everyone going through stuff right now.
Remembrance Day (sometimes known informally as Poppy Day owing to the tradition of the remembrance poppy) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.
Lest we forget the sacrifice of those who have lost their lives in the service to others on the battlefield. Peace to all who remember.
Social media enables us to talk about issues, shine a light on problems, and raise awareness of struggles that might have gone unnoticed. On the flipside, it also allows for a lot of noise and distractions. Sometimes it doesn’t create the best environment for a healthy discussion and can lead to trolling.Jagmeet Singh
