The Honourable Maryam Monsef, Minister of Status of Women. She spoke with grace about the culture and traditions she was brought up in, on the essence of fasting and what it means to her to see men come together in large numbers to fast and stand up against violence towards women and girls.

Two days ago, we handed out thousands of moose hide pins to the amazing people who joined the Walk for Reconciliation. It was a historic moment for Canada. 60,000 plus people come out to stand in solidarity for a Canada free or racism and its colonial past. Thank you to everyone who joined the Walk for Reconciliation and who, each day, “wear and share” about the Moose Hide Campaign and are committed to ending violence against woman and girls!
