Message from CAPRAC concerning the CANADA PR 2021 event

To ensure acknowledgement and meaningful action, but more importantly to go beyond acknowledging the wrongs that have been perpetrated against indigenous communities and the enduring impacts of colonialism in our country, we consulted with community leaders from the First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities to better understand how we can respectfully address this issue. We decided to open the virtual event with a poetry reading. This is a collaboration between a local First Nations poet and a local poet of colonial background. This text begins as an acknowledgement but becomes an oath that recognizes what we have done, and more importantly, what needs to be done to ensure truth, action and growth in the community.

The first inter-municipal show, Canada PR 2021 was a great success

Prescott-Russell, August 8, 2021—All eight municipalities of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell and the Prescott-Russell Arts Council (CAPRAC) are very pleased with the first virtual edition of Canada PR 2021.
