Please remember that within our Equity Action Plan, Shining Waters Regional Council has affirmed a zero tolerance approach to racist speech, discrimination and/or other forms of bigotry. This includes, though is certainly not limited to, our social media pages. Administrators of our pages have the right to remove any comments that do not support the Equity Action Plan and to ban those who engage with Regional social media pages for repeat offences. We believe in God who has created and is creating, who works in us and others by the Spirit. We will respect the sacredness of our gatherings and BE OPEN TO THE WORK OF THE SPIRIT who calls us to bring our bodies, minds and hearts, as well as our cultures and our histories together in ways that will transform who we are, how we gather and how we work together. We will walk the talk of our commitments to diversity and inclusion and rise to RESIST OPPRESSION, as well as expressions of hate and discrimination, both in our midst and in the world.For further information on our policies please see the Equity page of our website: shiningwatersregionalcouncil.ca/about/equity/ ...
