A beautiful sunny day blessed the various May Day Celebrations in which Frances Brady, Mary Gauthier and Rosemary Williamson participated in at Queen’s Park Circle and later at Nathan Phillips’ Square.
There was an infectious sense of both celebration and hope for the future in the presence of diverse but committed groups. One concrete expression of this hope is the fact that Toronto became the first Canadian city to declare itself a Sanctuary City for non-status migrants! This means they can access city services without fear.
Christian Peacemaker Teams, Idle No More, The Sanctuary Network and No One Is Illegal were some of those who participated in the celebrations and speeches at City Hall. This concluded with a walk along Queen Street and down Bathurst to the waterfront.
