Statement Against Racism and Racial Violence
June 23, 2020

The recent events of the #blacklivesmatter movement were spurred by the death of Black people in Canada and the United States. The protests around the world show that it is imperative to listen to the lived experiences of those who have been victims of systemic racism and prejudice, and those who have experienced mental health problems without adequate support in their lives.

It may feel as though these issues do not impact our lives in rural Northern Ontario but they do as was described in the recent #blacklivesmatter march held in North Bay. That is why the Municipality of East Ferris believes it is important to state that it stands in solidarity with all who seek a more just and equitable society.

We cannot navigate this with silence and we want to engage with everyone in the community we live to ensure that no one is silenced. As a Municipality, we continue to work to ensure our policies and governance create the necessary conditions that enhance the lives of the people we serve.
