In addition…Leaders of the Anglican Church of Canada, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, and United Church of Canada have issued a joint letter decrying racism.   Tuesday, June 2 was “blackout Tuesday” – a time to stop whatever your usual activity is (especially at a workplace) for nine minutes, to remember with lament the final nine minutes of George Floyd’s life… and to re-commit ourselves to justice, peace and fair treatment for all of the world’s people.
