Taken from the Facebook page for 1492 Landback Lane Autonomous Solidarity, September 16, 2021:
Skyler Williams was arrested after making a speech in front of John Tory's condominium.
The very thing that people were speaking out against in terms of police brutality took place as Skyler was apprehended by unidentifiable people and taken to a unmarked van. It is believed he is at the 14th division.
We are calling on all our communities to come together to look out for our loved ones. Help us in demanding the release of Skyler and for answers on this attack on our community.
Here is the number to call and a script you can follow:
14th Division TPS
I am calling to request that Skyler Williams being immediately released from custody.
This is a direct attack on our communities and on indigenous people and unhoused communities.
We are outraged at the brutality displayed as non identifiable people took Skyler in custody in an unmarked vehicle.
This is tyranny and a violation of human rights.
We demand answers and accountability from Toronto Police.
I haven't seen this posted here yet. Saskatchewan just put back the mandate of masks in public spaces as of tomorrow, and will be requiring proof of vaccine/vaccine passport for certain things as of October 1st. Scott Moe says, "We have been very patient — possibly too patient — but the time for patience is over."
hey there, so I'm currently homeless and on odsp, and very confused about additional subsidies that can help top up my rent so I can actually pay it, and was wondering if anyone can help. there's the COHB but I think you have to be contacted personally by them, that there's no way to apply? and then there's the HSF but that helps with furniture or last month's rent if you're moving, it's not a month-by-month subsidy. so I'm really really confused about how I can pay rent in toronto when there's only a $497 shelter allotment per month, and I could take some of the $672 I get otherwise, like $403 or so of it and also put it towards rent but that's only $900 and I would also want a cat and obviously to eat and I still need to pay $84 a month on my phone bill and I'm losing my mind a little. I tried connecting with Fred Victor which helps homeless women but they're just jerking me around right now and I've been homeless over 6 months and so tired of trashy incompetent shelter staff who don't care if you're being threatened or chased down a hallway by another resident. pls tell me there's another rent subsidy out there I haven't found
Prince George School District 57 is apologizing for a school assignment that told students to list the 'positive' impacts of colonies on Indigenous people.
"We are deeply sorry for any harm that this has caused to the students, parents, families and the Indigenous communities," said Kap Manhas, school district assistant superintendent in a statement.
"This assignment is not a reflection of our teachers or our commitment to truth and reconciliation. We are working through a restorative process with the parents, the teacher, the principal and our resource staff to apply safeguards to ensure this does not happen again."
On Tuesday, CBC News reported on student and parent outrage over a worksheet distributed in a Grade 9 social studies class at Prince George Secondary School during the first week of classes.
It instructed students to list both the "positive" and "negative" impacts of Europeans establishing colonies in the Americas, including Canada.
