As a result of the very public displays that we witnessed this weekend, as the Dean of the Faculty of Education I want people to know where I choose to stand. Every day, each and every day, each one of us can choose to stand up against bigotry, racism & xenophobia. We can choose to push back against hateful intolerance and attitudes and behaviours that deny people the right to dignity. This is where I stand.
- I will continue to listen to and amplify Indigenous and racialized voices.
- I will continue to call out, racism, xenophobia , bigotry and hate speech in all their forms.
- I will continue to stand up for people subjected to racism, xenophobia , bigotry and hate speech.
- I will continue to teach about, for and through human rights with a goal of creating a more just world.
-Dr. Jerome Cranston, Dean of Education
