COVID-19 Updates – June 2, 2020
I have been watching, with dismay, the situation in the United States and here in Canada.

We all have the right to be treated equally.
I believe that we must Respect and Accept each other. We should Celebrate our diversity and Embrace our differences, because we are all part of the human RACE.
