The Conservative Path to a Fairer Country

July 2, 2020

While there are many things we can point to in our history with pride, Canada has its own dark episodes of racism that cannot be ignored. Today, on the Blueprint, Jamie discusses the issue of racism in Canada with Dr. Ako Ufodike and Mr. William Luke from the Association of Black Conservatives, who believe that  through solid political and civic engagement with our democratic institutions, social and economic justice can be achieved. Canadian values and, in particular, true conservative principles, have and will continue to shape a fairer and more inclusive Canada.

 

The Association of Black Conservatives (ABC) actively promotes civic engagement and political participation because these are the proven pathways towards reform.
