    I look forward to creating an hour to listen to this thanks so much! And deep thanks to Dr. Cindy Blackstone for all her amazing dedication and work may it awaken all Canadians to the significance of what we need to learn and know. And become response able to share and give voice to our elected representatives of our concern. In any form of imbalance or unfairness it create inequality for all concerned.
