As your Director for LGBTQ2+(Pride) members on the PSAC Atlantic Council, I will soon be joining many PSAC members within the Atlantic Provinces and across Canada, and people around the world in recognizing the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. I would like to invite you to join me on this day in celebrating our diversity and bringing attention to the fact that LGBTQ2+ rights are human rights.

May is Asian Heritage month, a month when we celebrate the contributions workers from East Asia, South Asia, Central Asia and Southeast Asia have made to our communities and to our union.  This month we also reflect on the sacrifices generations of Asians Canadians have made in this country and the adversity they have overcome.  Celebrations will take place during the month of May, as will discussion and debate around finding collective solutions to end systemic racism.

April 28 is the National Day of Mourning when we remember those who have lost their lives or suffered injury and illness because of their work. Every day there are opportunities to prevent workplace injury and death, but we can’t do it without the data we need to drive our decision-making. In Canada, we collect statistics on many things including the weather, but we fail to accurately record the number of individuals who have died as a result of their work. Because of this, we do not learn the lessons that would allow us to prevent future tragedies.
