Peace Arch: Donna Morgan and Pro-Immigration Protestors

peace arch: Some of the anti-illegal immigration protestors at the Peace Arch in White Rock taunted the pro-immigration protestors as they left, but otherwise the event was peaceful, according to CTV. We organized a counter-rally to show that most Canadians stand up for the values of diversity and inclusivity, said Donna Morgan, one of the pro-immigration organizers with Stand Up to Racism Metro Vancouver. The face-off mirrored other dueling protests across the country on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, in Peterborough Ont. and at a border crossing near Montreal. She said Canadians who promote inclusivity vastly outnumber those who don't, and pointed to the Vancouver anti-racism rally at City Hall in August as evidence. That's why we think it's important to bring out the message of love and compassion, she said. These right racist ideologies can get a grip on the electoral system. ( As reported in the news.
