“We would like to begin by acknowledging that we are in Mi’kma’ki (MEEG-MA-GEE), the traditional territory of the Mi’kmaq people”. We want to continue to honour our promise to them to live in peace and friendship.”

Happy Martin Luther King Day: King, born Jan. 15, 1929, was one of the most visible figures in the civil rights movement of the 1960s. His message of non-violent resistance led to massive changes in American culture and paved the way for the end of segregation and the expansion of human rights.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” - Dr. Martin Luther King
