A message of love to Indigenous students

Building community is an intentional act. It takes people with pure and genuine hopes to come together and make a decision to support, care and love one another.

Toni Lauzon, Tanja Steinbach and Connor Lafortune exude these qualities and more. They came together to share space and words; words from their heart to Indigenous students across Ontario. Their intentions were pure. Their messages although separate all spoke to community. Finding your community, valuing yourself in community and trusting the support of your community.

We hope that these messages find a place in your minds and hearts. We hope that you take the words each person spoke and remember that there is a community of people who believe in you.
