    Ontario Federation of Labour Shows True Colors, Allegiance

    TORONTO, STATEMENT--(Marketwire - Feb. 11, 2010) - Black History Month should be embraced and recognized as an important time of reflection and celebration for all in our society, says Ontario Federation of Labour president Sid Ryan. "An understanding of the struggles, setbacks and triumphs of African Canadians reveals lessons that are valuable for all of us, not just the African-Canadian community."

    "The OFL takes great pride in our partnerships with vital community groups like the Colour of Change Network, with whom we recently co-sponsored a Human Rights Forum. Black History is not static, it continues to be made every day," says OFL executive vice-president Terry Downey. "It's 2010. As trade union and community activists, let's take this month to celebrate the achievements of African Canadian women and men and continue to partner with them proactively in their struggle for equity for all of Canadian society."

    A number of African Canadian organizations have been celebrating black history month in February since the 1950s. The Ontario Black History Society as instrumental in having February proclaimed as the official time period for this celebration both in Toronto in 1979 and Canada wide in 1995.

    I'm afraid this is nothing new. This is the kind of thing you'll hear out of every organization, major or minor, in Canada. Did you know that we even have a flourishing black-only school system? Yeah. Welcome to paradise.

    The OP should perhaps leave this to people who are more aware of what's going on in Canada. As Curator has already stated; this is nothing new. Sid Ryan is a socialist if there ever was one; his and their "true colours" have have been flapping in the wind for a long, long time now.
