I was disappointed to hear the Regions lackluster response to what Ms Caesar-Chavannes reminded everyone, is a global issue. In case you hadn't heard, injustice in it's many forms, anti black and otherwise, is no longer going to be tolerated and swept under the rug.

Durham has an historic and persistent reputation for discrimination and exclusion of non white people, in general. Take this opportunity to show all the people of Durham, including your growing racialized, tax paying population, who work and raise their families here, that everyone can expect to be treated with respect.

Frankly, no organizations get brownie points anymore for simply doing the right thing. It should always have been a basic expectation for the Region, its leaders, and staff.
