Alberta Liberals issue Black History Month Statement

Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan and MLA David Swann released the following statement for Black History Month:

Khan stated, “The black community in Alberta has made a tremendous contribution to our province’s history. Black History Month is an opportunity for all Albertans to share their stories in building this Province.

Alberta Liberals celebrate and honour the black community. We support a tolerant, inclusive, and multicultural Province.

Swann stated, “Black History Month reminds us that our diversity is our strength. We must always fight against pervasive racism, xenophobia and discrimination. The outstanding contributions of black Albertans and Canadians demonstrates that skin colour is never – and should never – be a barrier to greatness.”
