Expose 150 – Halifax

On Wednesday June 28th, Council of Canadians staff and supporters joined Solidarity Halifax to ‘Expose 150’. We handed out fliers to drivers as they waited at the lights after getting off the MacDonald Bridge in Halifax.

The event was organized in support of the Indigenous peoples for whom the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation is not a day of patriotic celebration, but a day of mourning and resistance.

The intention was to expose the truth of the Canadian government’s shameful history of exploitation and genocide.

Together we handed out information to drives, and demanded that the Canadian government, immediately engage in a process of meaningful reconciliation with Indigenous nations. We were calling observers to respectfully challenge all Canadians to consider their own rights and responsibilities as Treaty People.
