RE: Donald Trump just referred to the nations of Africa as “shithole countries.”
We object and condemn this callous remark in the strongest possible terms.
The nations of Africa are bold and equal partners within the global community, with surging economies and vibrant cultures.
The African Diaspora Association of the Maritimes encourages Canada to welcome more immigrants from Africa, whether they be wealthy economic migrants or people seeking refuge from war.
Whether they are doctors or refugees, engineers or asylum seekers, nurses or grandparents, we honour and celebrate the legacy of Africans – as citizens of the beautiful nations of the mother continent, or as immigrants to Canada.
God bless the birthplace of humanity – Africa!
