Call to action: Toronto Municipal Election 2014
UARR wants Toronto to be a safe campaign space for the full diversity of candidates
The Urban Alliance on Race Relations (UARR) implores all municipal candidates to campaign in a manner that is respectful, inclusive and welcoming of all Toronto residents. Racist, sexist, homophobic and xenophobic comments have no place in an election process and detract from the major issues in this municipal election.
All candidates should condemn these actions and Toronto Police should ensure a safe public space for all campaigns.
We call on all municipal candidates to be proactive by stating publicly their positions on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
