Father’s Day BBQ, and Truth & Reconciliation Rally in Caledonia

On Sunday, June 19, 2011, from 12 (noon) to 2 p.m. CANACE and Caledonia Victims Project organize a Father’s Day BBQ, with hotdogs, drinks, and chat. You’ll be able to listen to the music of Stuart Laughton, one of the  original members of Canadian Brass, founder of the roots-rock band Porkbelly Futures, and Founder/Artistic Director of The Forest Festival.

After the BBQ, from 2 p.m. a Truth and Reconciliation Rally is going to take place. The participants will try, once again, to erect a symbolic plywood Healing/Apology monument on the road allowance in front of the Douglas Creek Estates. Similar peaceful event took place a few months ago. Sadly, shortly after that the first monument  was stolen, destroyed and burnt along with the Canadian flag while OPP officers watched. Let’s hope that this time common sense would prevail…
