Mayor's Comments September 2, 2013

 
The Council and staff of the Town of Bancroft proudly uphold the Human
Rights Code of Canada.
 
In 2012 Council passed a proclamation to mark 50 years since the Ontario
Human Rights Code and I remind you of the following:
 
"Every person has the right to be free from discrimination and harassment
and to reach their full potential-no matter their race, ethnic origin,
place of birth, religion, ability level, sex, gender identify, sexual
orientation, or any other status. Council supports a community of mutual
respect and belonging by supporting an equitable environment where
everyone is included in work and services and able to enjoy the benefits
of their community without tension and conflict."
 
Council are deeply saddened that our town has negatively been affected by
what has recently taken place.
 
The simple truth is that intolerant and hurtful expressions towards
individual rights are not considered free speech. The town and every
person have a critical role in nurturing human rights and equitable
environments. I ask each and every citizen to think of how you are able to
contribute.
 
Bancroft  endorses an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan that was
completed through community engagement and one of the values identified in
the ICSP is that "We value diversity and work to build an inclusive,
cohesive community." Council embraces that value for our town.
