Toxic Tour 2016 Invite — 21 August 2016, Sarnia

From Esther Kern, CPT Canada Coordinator:

Here is an opportunity to learn more about the Indigenous community, within our own geographical area. I plan to attend on the Friday and Saturday, and for anyone coming from a distance, you are welcome to stay at our home in London, either before travelling to Sarnia, or after the event. I can also provide transportation to Sarnia for at least four people and we can discuss more details later if you decide to participate. I hope to see you there!

Best regards,

Esther Kern
