Dear Friends,

More than 100 people gathered last night at the Saanich South Community Office to commemorate the Komagata Maru incident.

It was a truly special evening because there was so much warmth, affection and good-will in the air.

Despite the fact that we had gathered to remember a historic moment of injustice defined by racism and intolerance, people were very happy and in a mood to celebrate.

I think that was because it was undeniable to everyone there just how much has changed in a 100 years and that gave us all so much hope for the future.

Special thanks go out to Samuel Godfrey, James Taylor, Chandar Sundaram, Sonia Manak and Mona Malik.
