Sheri Benson’s message for the Day of Pink Gala

Please see Sheri Benson’s message for the Day of Pink Gala:

“As an openly gay elected representative in the government of Canada, I have a duty and an obligation to share the resources that come with this privilege to bring awareness and a spotlight to this great event.  Celebrating leadership in communities is not just about pomp and circumstance but is an opportunity to model a way forward; to demonstrate the diversity of leadership that will see our way forward to end bullying and discrimination.  This year`s honourees come from a variety of disciplines and walks of life and it is exactly because of this diversity of leadership that we WILL see our communities become sooner rather than later, safe inclusive creative places for everyone.”
