I was happy to attend Mayor Brian Bowman's reception to kick off Black History Month.

How wonderful to celebrate with the community and see so many of my colleagues in attendance!

The 2020 theme for Black History Month is: "Canadians of African Descent: Going forward, guided by the past."

I encourage all to attend events during the month of February to honour the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.
