Liberal Leader David Khan issues International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

David Khan has issued the following statement on International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination:

“With the rise of xenophobic, racist and nativist politics across the globe it is more important than ever for all of us to redouble our commitment to a world free of racial intolerance. On International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, I invite all Albertans to join myself and countless others in reaffirming our commitment to eradicating racial discrimination in its every vile form.”

“It is particularly important in Canada to recognize the persistent racial inequality faced by Indigenous peoples, who face higher rates of poverty, infant mortality and incarceration, among many other inequities rooted in racist colonial policies from Canada’s past and present. It is our responsibility as a province and nation to make strides towards addressing these challenges.”
